PHSA is pleased to present a new, consolidated Research and Practice Education Metrics Report that integrates successes in these areas and reflects PHSA's strength as major Canadian academic health science organization.
Research and practice education, together with patient care, represent the integrated tripartite mandate of PHSA, one of the country’s largest academic health science organizations.
Fiscal year 2017/2018 is the tenth year that PHSA has published metrics for key research indicators, and the fifth year it has published metrics for practice education indicators.

that presents governance-level data from a more integrated perspective.

- infographics presenting FY 2017/2018 information at both the PHSA and research program level, as well as multi-year trend data for PHSA research;
- Top 3 Achievements by research program; and
- detailed outcomes by reporting entity, including identification of those achieved through intra-PHSA collaboration.
