The Department of Neurosurgery at Washington University is excited to announce that Magalie Cadieux, MD, MMSc, FRCSC, will join the spine division in July 2024. Cadieux is currently finishing out her neurosurgery spine fellowship at WashU.

A native of Montreal, Canada, Cadieux earned her medical degree at Université Laval in Quebec prior to completing her residency training at the University of Calgary. She also holds a Master of Medical Sciences in Medical Education from Harvard University, which she obtained during her residency years.  

“In addition to being a skilled neurosurgeon, Dr. Cadieux brings with her a passion for education and global health,” said Wilson Zachary Ray, MD, Chief of the Division of Spine Surgery. “I’m so happy that Dr. Cadieux will be staying in St. Louis, and I look forward to her many contributions to the spine division and the department at-large.”

As she concludes her WashU spine fellowship, Dr. Cadieux will embark on a global neurosurgery fellowship in Tanzania beginning in August, during which she will contribute to Dr. Roger Hartl’s Tanzanian Neurosurgery Program with Weill Cornell Medicine. You can learn more about Cadieux here
