Dr. Jason Cabaj
Public Health and Preventive Medicine is the medical specialty concerned with the health of populations. PHPM specialists assess population health and develop, implement, and evaluate health protection and promotion strategies to prevent disease and injury.
The primary mission of our program is to ensure that by the end of training each resident has the generalist competencies required of all Canadian public health practitioners. Clinical and public health training is integrated to maximize exposure to both specialties. Additionally, the program assists each resident in attaining the specialized competencies specific to their chosen career path. This latter objective is met by offering a flexible and customizable training program. Career paths within the context of University of Calgary PHPM Residency Program are:
Executive Manager/Consultant (e.g. Medical Officer of Health, Senior Executive, Consultant)
Researcher (e.g. University, Non-Governmental Organization, Public Health Institute/Agency)
Public Health Clinician (e.g. Primary Care, Addictions Medicine, Sexual Health, Travel Medicine)
