Each year, pilot funding for faculty member’s projects is available from the department. These funds are intended to help further develop research capacity and help faculty develop projects related to primary health care. These pilot projects are designed to support the development of future research projects that are larger in scale. During the two years of the pilot project funding, projects are typically submitted for external funding.
