About the O'Brien Institute for Public Health, University of Calgary

The O’Brien Institute for Public Health at the University of Calgary supports excellence in population health and health services research, while striving to realize the benefits of such research by using knowledge to inform community, policy and health practice stakeholders.

The Institute’s membership includes more than 450 multidisciplinary researchers from 13 Cumming School of Medicine departments and nine other University of Calgary faculties, such as Nursing, Veterinary Medicine, Kinesiology and Arts; health professionals in Alberta Health Services, and; research users and policy makers from municipal and provincial institutions. As an Institute, we share a vision of “Better health and health care” reflecting our two priority research areas of Improved Population Health and Enhanced Health Systems Performance.

The Institute’s success in brokering broader external relationships, with provincial and national interest groups, policy makers, research agencies, the media, philanthropists, and community stakeholders, further extends the reach and impact of our members’ significant research outputs.
