Global Health

The Department of Family Medicine approaches global health as an opportunity to support primary health care everywhere, in every country, and especially in the most vulnerable segments of the population.

Our training program does this through increasing mastery of the fundamentals, core practices and special competencies related to planning, management, research and education for primary health care.

Our research projects range from individual community to national in scope; they cover vector borne diseases, chronic diseases, safe motherhood, aging, gender violence, HIV, Indigenous health -- topics we are asked to support by community partners.
