Dr. Barry Pakes
Thank you for your interest in the Postgraduate Medical Education program in Public Health and Preventive Medicine (PHPM) at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, at the University of Toronto.
There are approximately 10-15 residents in our program at any given time and approximately 200 field and university-based faculty associated with the program. This is one of the largest Public Health and Preventive Medicine residency programs in Canada, offering a rich and varied range of training opportunities.
Graduates from this program have the opportunity to earn CCFP, MPH (or equivalent) and FRCPC qualifications.
Graduates from this program pursue careers in public health leadership positions at local, provincial, federal and international public health agencies, government and non-governmental agencies. Others follow academic and research career paths, while others choose to work in focused clinical areas such as addictions, immigrant health, and global health.
Residents field rotations occur in accredited Public Health and Preventive Medicine residency programs as well as elective rotations in a variety of settings within Canada and internationally.
PHPM is a recognized entry route for subspecialty training in Occupational Medicine by the RCPSC. Subspecialty training in Occupational Medicine is a 2-year program; however, PHPM graduates may be provided up to 1 year of credit for training during the PHPM residency by the RCPSC. PHPM graduates with an interest in Occupational Medicine may apply for the subspecialty residency program through CaRMS. For more details, please refer to the Occupational Medicine Residency Program description.
