Research and scholarship are important parts of the academic mission of a university department of Family Medicine. All of our residency training program sites and, indeed, many of our full time and community physicians are active in this way. The many individuals contributing bring a variety of skills and experience to the tasks.
Given the “generalist” nature of Family Medicine, you will find substantial diversity in the projects from clinical to health services research and across the life span from birth to death.
Our research laboratory is formed by the family practices and the communities of the Maritimes. The Maritime Family Practice Research Network or “MaRNet-FP” brings the practices together for this purpose. We also work with research teams at the national and international level.
Very importantly, we are striving to engage medical students, residents, other health professionals and graduate research students from a variety of backgrounds to build Primary Healthcare research capacity in Canada.
We welcome your interest and look forward to future collaborations.
