Clinical Faculty and Mentors

Join the Program

Our residency program depends on the contributions of our esteemed faculty and preceptors.

There are many opportunities for physicians, academics and other public health professionals to participate in the program:

• Academic Teaching – Opportunities are available to present at resident academic half days and additional workshops/courses, such as the Public Health Emergency Management seminar. If you are interest in participating, please contact the
Chief Resident. For additional course or workshop participation, please contact the Program Coordinator at
• Rotation Supervisors – The program continues to recruit supervisors for both core and elective rotations.
• Mock Oral and Written Exams – Opportunities are available to public health physicians to facilitate mock oral exams and written exam review sessions. These are scheduled multiple times per year, often for 2 hours on Friday mornings.
• Mentorship Program – The mentorship program pairs residents with a public health mentor for the course of their residency.
• External Residency Committee – The External Residency Committee (ERC) meets four times per year in order to discuss resident progress, program policies and operations. Members include the program director, representatives of each
rotation site, other clinical faculty, the Chief Resident, and elected resident representative.

Resident Assessment

An In-Training Evaluation Report (ITER) is formally completed at the end of each field placement by the designated supervisor. The ITER is designed to reflect the goals of training. The supervisor should discuss the results of this evaluation with the resident. An evaluation is also to be conducted at the mid-point of each rotation. The ITERs for each rotation are kept in the resident’s file at the School. Please download and complete the In-Training Evaluation Report (ITER) in the electronic format to enhance legibility.

At the end of the rotation the resident will provide to the Program Coordinator additional completed documentation as follows:

• Rotation Specific Objectives document “RSO”
• Activity Report
• Resident Assessment of Rotation
• Rotation deliverables as set out in RSO document (ie: article, report, Powerpoint Presentation)
