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.  

Students learn…

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.
