INSPIRE-PHC OSSU acts as the Ontario arm of the Transdisciplinary Understanding and Training on Research- Primary Health Care (TUTOR-PHC).  Travel costs and limited fellowships for Ontario trainees are provided.

TUTOR-PHC is a one-year, pan-Canadian, interdisciplinary research capacity building program that has been training primary and integrated health care researchers and decision-makers from family medicine, nursing, psychology, epidemiology, social work, education, policy and many other disciplines since 2003.

The innovative curriculum of this one-year certificate program in primary health care research skills and interdisciplinary theory & processes includes:

  • An on-site Symposium in the Spring of 2017
  • Two 3-week online research skill development workshops
  • Two 7-8-week online interdisciplinary discussion groups
  • Fall: present your own research project and receive interdisciplinary feedback
  • Winter: work with an interdisciplinary team to create a research proposal

As well, INSPIRE-PHC participates in the OSSU Working Group for Capacity Building and its initiatives. 
Two initiatives to date are:

  1. Creation of a Masterclass on the Use and Conduct of Patient-Oriented Research which aims to prepare individuals to champion the conduct and use of patient-oriented research (POR) in Ontario’s health system.  See  for more information.

  2. Patient-Oriented Research Capacity Building Initiative Awards. List of Recipients
