About Dr. Ivy Oandasan

Ivy Oandasan is a Full Professor with the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto. An active family physician, she has been involved in teaching and research since 1997. Dr. Oandasan’s main scholarship has been in curriculum development, evaluation, and research related to interprofessional education, and competency based family medicine education. Dr. Oandasan was the inaugural Director of the Office of Interprofessional Education at the University of Toronto (U of T) (1996). She led the development of the requisite IPE curriculum for all of U of T’s health professional students, which has been replicated internationally.

She was the Co-Chair for HealthForce Ontario’s Interprofessional Blueprint for Action that advanced a systems approach to implementing IPE and IPC across Ontario and led the national research team funded by Health Canada that developed a theoretical framework used worldwide on Interprofessionality: the field of study exploring the interprofessional practice and interprofessional education. Now, as the Director of Education at the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), the national certifying and accrediting body for family medicine, she is charged with enhancing undergraduate and postgraduate family medicine education supporting the development of family physicians who can meet societal needs.

In November 2022, she co-led a proposal that received $ 45 million of federal funding to advance training for team-based comprehensive family practice across disciplines in Canada. Dr. Oandasan’s burning platform is to foster a generation of competent and caring healthcare professionals who believe in the practice of interprofessional patient centred care.
