The Family Practice Research Development Rounds encourage departmental researchers and residents to present their work-in-progress, receive colleague feedback, exchange ideas, and form collaborations. They are open to anyone interested in family practice and primary care research.

Research Rounds are held the second Wednesday of each month from 8:00 to 9:00 am, 3rd Floor of the David Strangway Building, or by video-audio conferencing.
