The Continuing Medical Education Division at the University of Saskatchewan has received $400K for a new training program aimed at helping physicians assess and treat mental health conditions in children and youth. A release explains that the three-day session will bring 25 physicians from across the province for 16 hours of coursework, followed by a six-month, case-based distance learning program. “Our purpose at CME is to equip caregivers with knowledge and skills as they work to ensure the well-being of Saskatchewan people. We’re thrilled to be moving forward with a program focused on mental health,” said CME Associate Dean Jim Barton. SK
