The program has been developed according to the principles of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention, moving from a systems, population-based approach to a cohort-based or unit-based perspective, and culminating with an intense focus on individual-level of care. Strong emphasis will be placed on clinical leadership and critical thinking skills. This is a three year program.
