2019 Interdisciplinary Fellowship Program
A crucial part of Canadian Frailty Network’s mandate is to develop the next generation of Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) – the scientists and educators, clinicians, and health and social services professionals that will improve care for older adults living with frailty. The CFN Interdisciplinary Fellowship Program goes beyond traditional academic and clinical training opportunities by offering enriched experiential learning and interdisciplinary collaboration. In New Brunswick, the competition was presented in collaboration with the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation (NBHRF).
The 10 Fellows in our seventh annual cohort represent eight disciplines at eight Host Institutions in four provinces.
