RESIDENCY PROGRAM IN PUBLIC HEALTH AND PREVENTIVE MEDICINE
(FORMERLY COMMUNITY MEDICINE)
Public health and preventive medicine (PHPM) physicians are responsible for the health of populations or groups rather than with individuals. In conjunction with other health professionals and members of the community, the public health and preventive medicine physician measures the health needs of the community and develops methods of improving levels of health.
The Public Health and Preventive Medicine Residency Program is an accredited post-graduate training program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. If you are a graduating medical student applications can only be made through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CARMS). An official description of the Public Health and Preventive Medicine Residency Program can be found at the CaRMS website.
Regulations regarding the training in public health and preventive medicine can be obtained from the Royal College.
