Program Information

School:University of Toronto - Faculty of Medicine
Field of Study:Community Health and Preventive Medicine
Description:There is a very important interface between public health and primary care clinical practice1. It has been established that the health of a population is directly related to the availability of primary care services2. Delivery of primary care services is an important determinant of health and is therefore a global public health priority. Family physicians and other primary care clinicians are at the frontline of public health in terms of identifying emerging public health problems, promoting healthy lifestyles, screening appropriate patients for disease, advocating for patients and discharging public health initiatives to their patients3. These individual-level services skillfully provided by primary care clinicians can be improved and enhanced by equipping those same clinicians with the population-level knowledge and skills offered by an MPH* degree program4. The MPH FCM consists of a set of core courses and practicum covering both the area of public health as well as enhanced primary care and faculty development skills. There are plenty of elective opportunities, enabling the learner to take additional public health and family medicine courses to satisfy their learning objectives.
