|Description:||HRM at the MSc level aims to develop and refine critical and scholarly skills in the methodological aspects of applied clinical and health systems research. The specific skill domains include: research synthesis, research design, data gathering, knowledge translation, data-analysis and interpretation, communication of research results, and selection and development of measurement tools. Students may opt for the thesis-based or course-based MSc degree. Individuals from a wide range of professional backgrounds and disciplines are eligible for admission.
The HRM MSc program is divided into two admissions streams: Health Professionals (Stream I), and Background in Health, Social, or Biological Sciences (Stream II). Stream I students are health professionals including physicians, nurses, dentists, social workers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, etc. Stream II students often come from backgrounds in health, social or biological sciences. The training received by these students is intended to provide the skills necessary for them to function as researchers in the health care system. Health care professionals who enrol in the program are expected to become independent clinician-investigators able to conduct high quality research and advance the methodology of applied research in health and health care.
