Public Health and Preventive Medicine – Life After Residency Webinar Series

A series of free webinars designed for Public Health and Preventive Medicine Residents and Recent Graduates

Preparing for a career in public health extends well beyond the classroom. A vital part of that preparation will be learning from the experiences of others. That's the idea behind the proposed Public Health and Preventive Medicine – Life After Residency, a webinar based mentorship program sponsored by the Residents Council of the Public Health Physicians of Canada (PHPC).

Through this proposed webinar series, the mentees – public health and preventive medicine residents – will learn from seasoned PHPM specialists through a series of group mentoring sessions. In this way, mentees will have the opportunity to learn about PHPM careers and seek advice and information that can inform their career planning. All this to help support you in your journey from where you are now to where you want to be!

The mentors, in turn, will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of the public health workforce and play a role in training you – the future public health leaders of Canada.

The purpose of the proposed webinar series is:

  1. To provide an opportunity for public health and preventive medicine (PHPM) residents to learn from the real-life professional experiences of seasoned PHPM specialists as a means of exploring their professional options and help map their career paths, and
  2. To provide an opportunity for experienced PHPM specialists to share their advice and experiences in career development as a means of impacting the career plans of residents and promoting their career field amongst the next generation of public health physicians.
