Message from the Chair
Welcome to our uOttawa Department of Psychiatry website in evolution. This state also characterizes our department, as we are currently in a reorganizing and building mode to ensure that we meet our Strategic Plan goals by 2024.
Our budget year ends on April 30th. Check back in with us in May, when we will have our 19/20 Report Card on the site and our 20/21 Workplan up, too. We'll also have a much more finished looking website!
And as always, send us questions, ideas, and concerns.
