A Transformative Education

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.

Access To Vaccines: Overcoming Challenges And Exploiting Opportunities

Through our work and partnerships, every student will have the opportunity to actively participate in university life; find connection, community, and friendship; encounter new ways of thinking and being in the world; and experience leadership, independence, and success.

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 2021 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.

TRP Students Take Over GMCA’s Virtual Case Competition

TRP Students win top spots at GMCA’s Virtual Case Competition: Combating the COVID-19 Crisis 

The Graduate Management Consulting Association at the University of Toronto held their 10-day case competition, Combating the COVID-19 Crisis in March 2021. In this competition, participants had the opportunity to (1) learn how to approach a case (2) tackle real-life business challenges, and (3) present their recommended strategies to judges from our partnering firms.

Case Competition: Combating the COVID-19 Crisis

Participating teams received their case on March 17th. The competition consisted of two rounds: a preliminary and a final round. Each team gave a 10-minute presentation of their recommended solution to a panel of judges from our partnering consulting firms. Presentations were followed by a 10-minute Q&A period. This year GMCA awarded $1000+ in monetary prizes!

TRP Winners: 

28 teams participated in this case competition and two TRP teams won the first and third position, respectively:

Team 1: First Place Winners

Team 2: Third Place Winner

Congratulations to our students on securing podium positions at this GMCA competition. We couldn’t be prouder! 

Quotes:

“I feel very lucky to have been a part of such an incredible team with my TRP peers! The GMCA Case Competition was a great way for us to apply our learnings from class! For example, our group spent a lot of time understanding and defining the problem before trying to solve it. As we learned in our TRP classes, if you have 60 minutes to solve a problem, the first 50 should be spent truly understanding it first. The case competition has been a really valuable learning experience for me and I would absolutely recommend it to other students!” Sally Moy 

“Participating in the GMCA mini-MBA case study competition was a very enriching and valuable experience. It was a process that brought many up and downs but with the help and guidance of excellent group members, we were able to think, plan and execute our strategies and recommendations in a highly efficient manner. I’m very thankful for GMCA and the TRP for allowing me to partake in such a great experience. I would have never expected myself to participate in a business case study competition and be the winner of first place along with my team members.” Oscar Palacio 

“Participating in GMCAs case competition alongside my fellow TRP classmates was an amazing experience as it allowed us to put into practice a whole year of learnings. What was really amazing is that every step we took to solve the case seemed logical and natural. I guess that Is why, even though we hoped for it, winning the competition was totally unexpected.” Andres Kohan

“It was an amazing opportunity, people without any experience in consulting started to learn, after 10 weeks they participated in a competition and they won. Never say No, accept opportunities, Try hard, and see results.” Azadeh Bojmehrani
