Dr. Jorgenson began his appointment with the College in July of 2008.  His research program focuses on primary health care practice and has interests in investigating: optimal roles for pharmacists in the primary health care system, interventions to improve medication management in the primary health care system, and best methods of teaching medication management skills to health professional students and practicing pharmacists.  He also recently launched the Medication Assessment Centre in the College as a means to teach health professional students medication management skills in authentic patient care scenarios.  His team includes: Julia Bareham (M.Sc. student), Robert Pammett (M.Sc. student), Krysta Currie (M.Sc. student), Katherine Lysak (M.Sc. student), Eric Landry (Coordinator, Medication Assessment Centre), and Christine Pollries (administrative assistant).
