"McMaster Unversity has earned its reputation as an innovator in health sciences education. At PERD our goal is to continue to innovate ideas, disseminate scholarly work, and pollinate health education research centres in Canada and beyond. By making connections within our faculty between programs, between departments, between people, and between ideas, and by introducing just enough anarchy within our system to allow ideas to germinate and grow, we may not only maintain but enhance our pedigree." Dr. Harold Reiter, PERD Director
The PERD Network is PERD's informal membership circle. Made up of faculty, staff, students and associates, the Network functions as a potential resource center for those actively involved in Medical Education scholarship.
