A primer on population health: a new resource for students and clinicians.

Author information

Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada, Ontario, Canada.


This is one of six short papers that describe additional innovations that support the integration of public health into medical education. These were featured in the "Patients and Populations: Public Health in Medical Education" conference and describe innovative endeavors or curricular components not previously published. This paper describes the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada's Primer in Population Health and its collaborative development with contributions from all Canadian medical schools, in particular from the medical faculties of the University of Ottawa and the Université de Sherbrooke. Although evaluation data will not be available until the primer has been in use for at least 1 year, sharing a description of it is of potential value to medical educators.
