Joint Education Research Program

The Joint Education Research Unit (JERP) is a collaborative initiative founded in October 2015 with Shanghai 6th People’s Hospital in China, an affiliate of Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine (SJTUSM), which aims to support innovation in medical training at levels from undergraduate education to continuing professional development. The JERP will enable professors from Ottawa and Shanghai to research on curriculum delivery, evaluation methods and improve medical education in Canada and China.

The history of collaborative initiatives between the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine and Shanghai 6th People’s hospital stems back to 2006, when both institutions, recognizing the value of international cooperation, agreed to collaborate on academic and research activities on the basis of mutual benefit.
