MHSc in Translational Research

The program has 4 main pillars. They are:
I. Experiential and Intentional–learn by systematic doing
II. Collaborative and Participatory
III. Competency & Process focused (not assessment-based or endpoint focused)
IV. Learner-driven: we facilitate—we don’t lecture
Within this structure are built-in opportunities for students to choose topics and areas of focus, as well as help, contribute to learning outcomes of each class session. The program also uses case-based, project-based, and experiential learning to get students to focus on direct observation and engagement; reflection and abstraction of those experiences; their integration with previous knowledge; and their testing and evaluation in real-world contexts.
