A Transformative Education

At the TRP our goal is not to teach. Our goal is not to lecture or have you memorize some datum likely to change before you finish your degree, or that a search engine can find faster than you can formulate the question.

The TRP is a community and a mindset of people who are resources, facilitators, mentors, peers, guides and catalysts whose aim is to help those, who are looking to learn, to explore, to push the boundaries of their experience to seek knowledge.

The TRP is not intended to be divided as a degree of teacher-task-masters and students–those who know one truth and those hoping to memorize that truth. Instead, the program strives to be a community of people motivated to learn, to seek knowledge, to help others to be more and do more. In this community, the focus is not on the content but on understanding the processes, the mechanisms of creative problem-solving and innovation.

Students learn alongside the faculty–we learn together and from each other. We learn from real-world contexts and from failure–not from arbitrary grades or standardized testing–because our collective goals are not to pass a test or earn a grade but to improve lives, to learn to champion change that will improve the lives of others.

Now, we are starting to seek people join our 2019 cohort. Those motivated to learn, those seeking to move beyond their comfort zones, to challenge ambiguity, who want to focus on the processes of innovating of generating new ideas and championing change for positive impact are the kindred spirits we seek–these are the people we seek to join our ranks.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in a different kind of graduate program, who is motivated to learn by doing and is seeking a transformative education, then we need to talk. Come to an information session, read the website, arrange a consultation with someone from our team.

One day soon, we, trainees, mentors, facilitators, students, residents, PI’s, researchers, clinicians, healthcare professionals, and many others, will form a global network of professional translators, who think globally but work locally to improve the health and well-being of people in our communities. And together we will transform health, care and medicine.

Join us.

University Of Toronto Rises In Global World Rankings

U of T Ranked In The Top 10 In Nine Subject Areas Globally According To 2020 QS World Rankings

Zoya Retiwalla | TRP | July 8, 2019


The annual QS World University rankings were announced recently and the University of Toronto continues to enjoy top positions in numerous disciplines.
When you think of UofT, you would think of old stone buildings and new glass ones surrounded by a campus that supports the innovations and ideas of over 560,000 graduates. However, UofT’s penchant for excellence and it’s constantly expanding educational programs has led its consistent rise in World University Rankings. “Our students have the opportunity to learn from and work with preeminent thought leaders through our multidisciplinary network of teaching and research faculty, alumni and partners,” reads the QS report that placed the University of Toronto in the 29th spot from hundreds of universities worldwide.
UofT has been in the world ranks for decades now but this year the university excelled even further and is now among the 10 best universities in the world in nine subjects as diverse as psychology, clinical medicine, finance, public health, and geography. “These results recognize the University of Toronto’s excellence across a wide range of subjects,” said U of T President Meric Gertler.
The QS report further adds, “founded in 1827, the University of Toronto has evolved into Canada’s leading institution of learning, discovery and knowledge creation.” That holds true because UofT has yet again been ranked as the highest Canadian university and holds a position as one of the world’s top-ranked public universities in various international rankings.
