Pierre Frémont is a professor in the Department of Rehabilitation from the Faculty of Medicine at Laval University since 1994. He is a past-president of the Canadian Academy of Sport and Exercise Medicine and represents this organization at the Canadian Concussion Collaborative since 2012. Since 2014, he is involved as a medical expert on concussion on several Canadian national and provincial (Quebec) initiatives to develop and implement concussion-related recommendations and policies in education, sport and leisure environments. As a clinician and researcher, he has developed a broad expertise on implementation issues related to the prevention, detection and management of concussions. He was involved in the implementation of concussion management strategies in environments ranging from youth development sports to international competition level.

In 2016, he developed the first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on concussion in French language at Laval University as a support to knowledge implementation regarding concussion. With Dr. Kathryn Schneider, he is the co-leader for the development of an English version of a MOOC on concussion (a collaboration between the University of Calgary and Laval University). He is one of the co-investigators and leader of the clinical committee for the “Surveillance in High Schools to Reduce (SHRed) Concussions in Youth” research program led by Dr. Carolyn Emery.
