OPD’s research and scholarship activities are integral to all of the department’s activities.

OPD is accredited by the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) Committee on Accreditation of Continuing Medical Education (CACME) and research and scholarship is an essential component of the CACME standards. Research and scholarship are also core components of the mandates of the Faculty of Medicine and Memorial University.

OPD advances lifelong learning through evidence-informed CPD, scholarly research, and collaboration. OPD disseminates the findings of its research and scholarship activities via publications in peer-reviewed journals, as well as presentations at provincial, national, and international conferences.

Please contact Lisa Fleet, Manager, Research for more information about OPD research services or if interested in OPD research and scholarship activities.
