The Department of Community Health Sciences is very involved in the educational endeavours of the Faculty of Medicine, at all levels. In particular, our Department provides teaching and mentorship in Community Health Sciences to undergraduate medical students, graduate students (Masters and Doctoral), Community Medicine Residents, and Post-Doctoral Fellows. Descriptions of our educational programs in these areas are provided in the links to each of the programs, located below.
Our Graduate Program offers a broad, multidisciplinary training at the Diploma, Master’s and Doctoral levels in the concepts and methods of the population-based health sciences and their application in the practice of population health, public health and preventive medicine
The department participates in all four years of the medical curriculum. Please click on the link for complete information on Undergraduate Medical Education Program . A list of specific courses, sessions and clerkships is outlined on Community Health Sciences website.
The Community Medicine Residency Program is a five-year medical specialty program accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Application to the program can be made through the Canadian Residency Matching Service (http://www.carms.ca/) or, in some instances, through the Faculty of Medicine’s re-entry process. Please contact the Community Medicine Residency Program Director for more information.
The expertise of our Faculty is far reaching, and collaborations with other researchers have resulting in three training programs, available to our Graduate Students on a competitive basis.
