The Department of Health, Kinesiology and Applied Physiology at Concordia University, Montreal, announces the availability of a 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bariatric Care in adolescents and adults living with obesity in partnership with the Montreal Children’s Hospital and the CIUSSS-NIM.
This fellowship will be directly attached to a pan-Canadian CIHR-funded study designed to develop and test behaviour change communication training programs targeting physicians, nurses and allied healthcare providers working in the area of chronic disease management.
