Graduate Report

We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the tremendous resilience of our students who continue to fight COVID-19.  Despite their tremendous clinical roles, they remain committed to pursuing their academic goals in the MClSc and PhD Programs.

The Enhanced Skills Program (Academic Family Medicine) has interviewed one candidate for the MClSc Program, an offer has been extended.

FMF and NAPCRG were held virtually once again this year.  As a result, our recruitment efforts at these venues were somewhat limited.  We encourage faculty to continue to promote our Graduate Programs to their residents and colleagues.

We welcome Dr. Kevin Pottie as a member of the Graduate Programs Community.  Dr. Pottie has been approved for a Doctoral level SGPS membership in Family Medicine which will enable him to teach and supervise students in both the MClSc and PhD Programs.

We also send our congratulations to Dr. Pottie,  an alumnus of the MClSc Program who was recognized as the Researcher of the Year by the Section of Researchers of the College of Family Physicians of Canada.

Dr. Jennifer Johnson, MClSc alumnus and a faculty member in our Graduate Studies Program presented a poster at Family Medicine Forum (FMF)  titled “Primary Care Providers Reflections on Truck Drivers Health” (Co-Authors – Drs. Amanda L. Terry, Evelyn Vingilis)
