Graduate Program Report

Congratulations to Drs. Nisha Ravichandiran and Divya Garg (MClSc) on completing their programs. Western will be celebrating their success virtually on October 29, 2020 and again back on campus at a future Convocation ceremony when it is safe to do so.

Dr. Julie Copeland will defend her thesis virtually on December 2, 2020.  Dr. Copeland’s thesis is titled “The Experiences of Family Medicine Teachers and Family Medicine Residents in Multimorbidity Care and Education" and her supervisors are Drs. Sonja Reichert and Ted Osmun.

Our graduate courses have commenced on OWL and students are well engaged.

Dr. Judith Brown will be attending FMF and NAPCRG virtually this fall and promoting the Graduate Programs where possible in her interactions with colleagues.  We continue to encourage our Centre faculty to promote the Graduate Programs to the PGY1 / PGY2 residents.
