After completing her radiation oncology residency in 1996 at the Université de Montréal, Jolicoeur completed a fellowship specializing in brachytherapy at the Centre George-François Leclerc in Dijon, France. She then started a professorship at the Department of Radiation Oncology of the Université de Montréal, which she still holds today. In 1999 she was appointed to the planning and construction of a new radiation oncology department for the Hôpital Charles Lemoyne, of which she currently serves as chief of department. 

As a brachytherapy specialist, Jolicoeur is active in the treatment of gynecological, genitourinary, breast, head and neck and soft tissue tumor. She has special research interests in the application of brachytherapy in area such as breast, genitourinary and gynecologic cancers. She is a strong promoter for the use of brachytherapy to replace the conventional mastectomy for local recurrences of breast cancer. 

Today, her main focus is the development of image guided implant procedures, the precision delivery of conformal high dose rate brachytherapy and teaching brachytherapy in the radiation-oncology program and it’s gynecologic oncology fellowship program.
