Institute for Reconstructive Sciences in Medicine
Created in 1993, the Institute for Reconstructive Sciences in Medicine (iRSM) is a world-renowned clinic and research centre focused on medical reconstruction and rehabilitation. We are a joint initiative of the University of Alberta, Covenant Health and Alberta Health Services based at the Misericordia Community Hospital in Edmonton.
We work with patients who need facial reconstruction following head and neck cancer or trauma or to replace structures missing at birth. We are also home to the Bone Conduction Amplification program, which helps people who are not able to use traditional hearing devices.
The iRSM is committed to creating and sharing new knowledge. We:
- organize international conferences and multidisciplinary workshops
- train specialists from around the world
- host international visitors
