Public Health Interest Group

London and Windsor
Specialty Interest

Welcome to the SchulichMeds page for the Public Health & Preventative Interest Group! We are a group of Schulich students interested in learning more about (and potentially pursuing) the Public Health & Preventative Medicine (PHPM) residency program in Canada. Even if you are not interested in pursuing PHPM as a specialist, this interest group may appeal to you if you are interested in any and all aspects of public health, including health promotion, epidemiology, health policy, and health economics. Our mission is to provide our members with engaging events and initiatives in order to a) increase awareness of PHPM, its importance in Canada, and the role of physicians in promoting PHPM; b) provide a setting in which medical students can learn more about and discuss current & relevant topics in public health; c) pool our collective knowledge about PHPM to leverage it into our collective success in pursuing PHPM-related careers.
