The Vice-Rector for Internationalisation at the University of Lleida (UdL), and head of the GRECS research group at IRBLleida, Montserrat Gea, is the new Director General of Health Professionals in Catalonia. The Catalan Ministry of Health has appointed her to replace Marc Ramentol, who will become Secretary General after two and a half years in the post "in view of the expected second wave of COVID this autumn-winter".

Gea, a lecturer at the Faculty of Nursing and Physiotherapy, holds a doctorate from the UdL with an international mention (University of Toronto). She combines her teaching work with healthcare, especially in the hospital environment, and is also president of the Lleida Association of Nurses. She is a specialist in public health policy and qualitative research at the Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing at the University of Toronto.
