To promote stronger interest amongst youth in our region for health care field, in particular at the BMP Hospital, the Foundation presents tree initiatives:

  • BMP Foundation Scholarship Program

BMP Scholarship Program

The BMP Foundation Scholarship Program is open to graduating students from Brome-Missisquoi’s high schools who are pursuing studies in health care. The program is designed to encourage local students to pursue a career in health care and, at the same time, to develop a positive working relationship between the community and the BMP Hospital.

Each year’s winner receives a $1,000 scholarship, renewed each year of the student’s CEGEP program.

The deadline to submit an application is on April 1st.

Student Visit Program

The BMP Foundation organizes guided school visits for students at the end of their course from the four regional high schools to enable them to discover career opportunities in the health care field at the BMP Hospital. Each year, 60-70 students go on these one-day visits and are exposed to careers in medicine, nursing, laboratory, pharmacy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, medical imaging, and respiratory therapy.

The visits are currently guided by Dr. Robert Pincott, a retired BMP Hospital general physician.


“Thanks to the visit, I learned a lot more about the different jobs in the hospital. I really enjoyed all of it.” Ivy Lacroix

“Thanks to the visit, I have now made a final decision on my college field of study. Thank you very much!” Alexandre Roy

“I loved the fact that Dr. Pincott is still passionate about his former job as a doctor. This shows me that it’s possible to be passionate about your work.” Alexia Larose
