Who Should Apply
This training program is aimed at primary health care research students and decision makers.

Students could include:

  • Community Based Primary Health Care (CBPHC) Team trainees
  • SPOR Primary and Integrated Health Care Innovations (PIHCI) Network trainees
  • mid-career clinicians
  • post-doctoral fellows
  • residents doing research fellowships
  • graduate students

Eligibility for decision makers:

  • Employed full time in a role that shapes policy or manages programs that are directly relevant to primary health care
    • Typically, employed in ministries of health or regional health authorities with portfolios that include the development or implementation of evidence-informed primary health care policies
    • Institutional duties should include exposure to research or systematic inquiry
  • Firm commitment from employer to a half-day per week of release time to participate
  • Employers may support greater than one applicant, but the trainee selection is at the discretion of the TUTOR-PHC selection committee

Of note:

  1. Mid-career clinicians are practicing, registered, health professionals who are looking to engage in independent research or moving toward an academic career in primary health care research. This would normally exclude employees/project coordinators not conducting independent research. (In rare instances, a research project coordinator with a stated intention to pursue an independent career in research would be considered.)
  2. Those who have completed a PhD and are already in an academic faculty position would be considered overqualified for this program
  3. While CBPHC Team trainees and SPOR PIHCI Network trainees will be given preference, TUTOR-PHC selects it’s trainees via an open competition. All qualified primary health care researchers and decision-makers are invited and encouraged to apply.
  4. You may be eligible to earn university credit and CME credits for the completed hours and work you do in TUTOR-PHC. Please speak with the Coordinator for more information.
  5. Each fellow will be responsible for a $3,000 CAN program fee (travel to and accommodation at Symposium included in fee).
