Dr. Stephen Wetmore, Chair of the Department of Family Medicine, is pleased to announce the interim directorship of the Centre for Studies in Family Medicine, (CSFM). Effective November 1, 2018 through to September 30, 2019, the interim Co-Directors of the CSFM will be Dr. Sonny Cejic and Amanda Terry, PhD.
This position will be shared by the two co-directors on an approximate 50 per cent basis. This unique partnership will help to stabilize the CSFM and allow for maintenance of workload and productivity during this transition period. During this time the CSFM will benefit from the experience and expertise of a basic scientist in a clinical department and a clinician with research experience as co-leaders.

Her major teaching responsibilities are in the Master of Public Health Program and the Department of Family Medicine Graduate Studies Program.
