The Department of Family Medicine’s Global Health Program encourages our faculty and residents to bring their expertise in caring for people of all ages, cultures and circumstances to those who need it most. We work with underserviced communities in Ottawa, Canada’s far north and abroad.
To help eliminate health inequities both locally and globally by promoting excellence in primary health care education and delivery.
To engage learners and educators in Global Health teaching, scholarship and clinical care in order to assist communities with unmet health needs, thereby promoting social accountability in our current and future practices.
We offer a number of ways for our residents to gain Global Health experience, including:
- Global Health Elective Opportunities, open to all residents,
- The Global Health Training Track for residents interested in a Global Health focus to their PGY1 and PGY2 residency,
- Special Lectures and Events (Join the Ottawa Family Medicine – Global Health Training Track Facebook Group to learn more), and,
- A PGY3 Enhanced Skills Program in Global Health
We work in partnership with the Office of Global Health at the Faculty of Medicine.
