Transdisciplinary Understanding and Training on Research-Primary Health Care (TUTOR-PCH)

Training Programs / Organization | Canada – Global

The Transdisciplinary Understanding and Training on Research-Primary Health Care (TUTOR-PHC) program is a unique one year, pan-Canadian interdisciplinary research capacity building program that has been training Canadian and international primary health care researchers and decision-makers from family medicine, nursing, psychology, epidemiology, occupational therapy, social work, education, policy and many other disciplines since 2003. 

TUTOR- PHC’s curriculum creates an innovative environment where trainees build collaborative, interdisciplinary relationships, and learn patient-centred and primary health care research methodologies in an in-person and online environment. The curriculum includes a symposium, online workshops, online interdisciplinary discussion groups, mentoring of trainees’ personal research projects and group activities leading to the creation of a research proposal. The program’s goals are to train a cadre of PHC researchers, clinicians, and decision makers in interdisciplinary research to aid them in tackling current and future challenges in PHC and leading collaborative interdisciplinary research teams. TUTOR-PHC builds a pan-Canadian network of alumni and mentors and develops the primary health care research leaders of tomorrow.
