Make a Difference: Become a Patient researcher
PaCER is a teaching and and research support unit within the O'Brien Institute for Public Health at the University of Calgary. Our interns are patients, caregivers or family members who want to be engaged in patient-to-patient health research and use their experiences to make a difference.
The year long Internship program is conducted as a group project and is designed to accommodate individual work and health needs.
