The healthcare field is undergoing rapid transformation. This change in tide has brought with it a slew of questions – how are things done, how should things be done, by whom, and what repercussions would this evolution bring forth?
These days, in health science, it seems like everyone is talking about “Translation”. It comes in numerous flavours and seldom does everyone at the table agree upon the meaning.
We at the TRP believe that translation is the process of turning knowledge, observations, and discoveries into interventions (via application or commercialization) that positively impact the health of patients. Breakthrough scientific research is an indispensable cornerstone of healthcare. However, if this research never truly translates into the clinic, interventions that could improve patient health would never be found.
We take a patient-centered approach to translation, to promote evidence-based interventions that are impactful to patients and help improve lives. Our philosophy at the TRP is to raise actionable questions and prepare individuals to translate observations into innovations.
To extend our reach and have our message heard meaningfully, we collaborated with the New Horizon’s podcast team from York University. Their podcast on our program features our revered Dr. Richard Foty, Assistant Professor at the TRP; accomplished alumna Kathleen Mounce; and riveted student Andrew Wan.
Their captivating conversation covers aspects of what our program teaches, it’s unique framework, the journey of self-discovery and future prospects. Here’s a trailer with snippets of the engaging talk.
With your interest now piqued, watch the faculty video podcast and hear the alumna-student audio podcast to learn how you could become a part of our unique program that is more than just a degree.
