About Us...

Curriculum

 

SYMPOSIUM:

Presentations and workshops are conducted in small groups during a three day, on-site symposium followed by on-line components when participants return to their home institutions.

Experience indicates this face-to-face symposium is important in order to: build enthusiasm; model interdisciplinary communication and discussion; build supportive relationships; impart material not easily transmitted on-line; and negotiate the process for the on-line learning.

2017 Symposium:
This year the symposium was hosted by Western University:

May 8th - May 11, 2017
Kingbridge Centre at the Kingbridge Centre, King City, Ontario

See the 2017 Symposium Schedule for further details

ON LINE CURRICULUM:

Interdisciplinary Discussion Groups:

  • Trainees will participate in an asynchronous (i.e., participants log-on at their convenience) on-line interdisciplinary/research formal discussion group covering one topic/project every week.
  • Fall - Trainees are responsible for the presentation of their developing project (usually their thesis project) on a rotating basis. The on-line group and Mentors facilitate solutions tailored to the primary health care methods, measures and setting. Each trainee’s supervisor is specifically encouraged to give input on-line during their own trainee’s presentation. Active participation in all weeks is expected.
  • Winter - Interdisciplinary group members will work together on an interdisciplinary primary health care research proposal in response to a mock Call for Proposals. Each group member will be responsible for facilitating the discussion on a section of the proposal (one week) and active participation in the other weeks.

 

ON-LINE WORKSHOPS:

  • On-line workshops to fill gaps in the trainees discipline-based graduate programs regarding both interdisciplinary theory and process and unique primary health care research issues and methodologies. Trainees will participate in at least two on-line workshops during the year.

MENTORING:

  • The program’s Mentors (educators/researchers from various disciplines in primary health care) will offer leadership and guidance to participants until they are established primary health care researchers.
  • Trainees will have a primary Mentor. All participants will have access to Mentors from all disciplines for questions/discussions regarding their research. All participants will be encouraged to submit their grant applications and manuscripts for peer-review among the mentors prior to submission.
