Partnering in Community Health Research

Partnering in Community Health Research (PCHR) provides training for graduate students, post doctoral fellows and community program practitioners and specialists. Working in partnership, program participants learn research skills required to resolve actual and urgent community health problems. Currently in its fifth year, PCHR includes approximately 20 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and community learners, and approximately 20 academic and community mentors representing a range of disciplines and professions. The program is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research at the University of British Columbia.
