There are two streams:
- Graduate stream, leading to a Masters degree or Ph.D
- Post Graduate stream, for those residents who already have a post graduate degree
The program is available to residents enrolled in specialty or subspecialty residency programs accredited by the Royal College who have demonstrated an interest in and a potential for a career as clinician investigators.
For the purpose of this program, health research includes not only the traditional areas of laboratory and clinical biomedical research, but also such fields as economics and management, and social, behavioural and information sciences as they apply to health and disease.
