Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Medicine
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Medicine (MD)
Description This program will have very close ties to the Family Medicine Educational Research Group (FMER), which is the corollary of the educational innovations in teaching and research conceived and established in the McGill Department of Family Medicine since 2005. The FMER group’s ultimate goal is to advance knowledge to: constantly inform family medicine curricula innovations and continuing professional development to better family physicians’ clinical practice; significantly contribute to the development of the family medicine education field of inquiry; and rigorously develop and inform medical education policy. This research agenda of FMER is articulated into four interrelated streams: family physician’s professional identity formation; information use and technology in the learning episodes of practicing physicians and organizational learning; program evaluation of educational innovations; and knowledge synthesis.
