Centre for Studies in Primary Care

The Centre for Studies in Primary Care (CSPC) is the research arm of the Department of Family Medicine at Queen's University. The CSPC conducts high-quality research that is focused on the improvement of primary health care practice delivery and education, at the local and national level. Our research activities draw on a wide range of disciplines through collaborative academic partnerships, and include involvement of practicing physicians who participate in our research program through our Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN).



Our Mission


The Centre for Studies in Primary Care is dedicated to the conduct of primary care research, surveillance and education that extend our understanding of health, health maintenance, disease and its treatment, and care delivery, and the assessment and dissemination of evidence.

Our Vision


To improve the health and well-being of people in Southeastern Ontario and beyond through research, surveillance and education in primary care.

Our Goal


The CSPC works to increase capacity in primary care research through research training for students, family medicine residents, other primary care trainees, and practicing family physicians. A Fellowship or Masters-level program in Primary Care Research is a goal of the CSPC.
