Program Requirements

The program normally requires a minimum of two years of full-time study and a maximum of three years with the first eight months devoted primarily to course work. It enables students to gain core knowledge and skills in epidemiology and biostatistics methods, health services and policy research, or population health to develop research experience by applying these methodologies to a research project under the supervision of a supervisory committee.

The minimum requirement for an M.Sc. is 30 credits, including 13.5 credits of core courses plus the M.Sc. thesis (12 credits). However, the actual courses required are at the discretion of program supervisors; often the number of credits required ranges between 36 and 42.

General Information

The Master of Health Sciences (MHSc) degree is a professional degree designed to give the graduate strong research methodology skills that can be applied to their academic and clinical interests. The program is adapted towards students who have an MD and want to gain research experience by applying epidemiological and statistical methods to a major paper under the supervision of a faculty member.

Students pursue course work in clinical research skills. These skills will include survey and questionnaire design and analysis, systematic reviews, clinical trial design, data analysis and presentation. Qualitative as well as program and economic evaluation methodology courses are available. The underlying precepts for all courses are critical thinking skills. There will be an opportunity to explore health policy and population health concepts but not in depth due to the limited number of credits needed to graduate.
