Translational Research (TR)
Translation in the health sciences involves a systematic and strategic approach to developing novel tools, mechanisms, services, drugs, techniques, policies, and protocols that address the needs of people and populations. TR consists of methods of inquiry, best-practices, and frameworks to optimize the successful design, development, implementation, testing, and dissemination of innovation in healthcare.
Master of Health Science (MHSc) in Translational Research
is a project-based graduate degree intended for students from diverse backgrounds who aspire to apply knowledge for innovation in healthcare. Students explore strategies, competencies and creative problem-solving approaches indispensable for innovating people-centered processes, procedures, products and services.
The two-year competency focused degree employs collaborative and self-directed “learning by doing” to challenge students to think differently.
Our curriculum is a combination of in-class seminars, workshops and projects that provides direction for broader student initiatives as part of their own self-directed learning in the community. Seminars are designed as a rallying point for discussions, peer learning and facilitation as students network and engage in real-world problems through their co-curricular activities and professional activities.
through real-world challenges, mentorship, networking, and personal development plans, students gain experience, expertise, and practical insights into processes, regulatory frameworks, translational networks and strategies applicable to a range of careers across medicine, health and care.
Applying scientific knowledge to impact medicine, health and care in our communities and the world.
“The TRP gives us an opportunity to hear from different discussants every week. It’s inspiring to interact with individuals who have so much experience to share, whether it’s their successes or failures.”
