CEHCR is designed to train individuals with a health professional background to become independent investigators.
Clinical epidemiology applies epidemiologic principles and methods to the delivery of healthcare, sometimes referred to as “the basic science of clinical medicine.” Clinical epidemiology covers a wide range of disciplines, emphasizing research on improving prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment in patients.
Students will learn the principles and methodologies of epidemiology to investigate gaps and barriers in patient care, test hypotheses, and translate their research into practice and health policy.
CEHCR has an international reputation for excellence in clinical, health services, knowledge translation, and decision sciences research. Graduates will join an extensive network of leaders in healthcare research, policy, and practice throughout Canada.
Gain access to the program’s highly connected and integrated network, situated near the Faculty of Medicine, research institutes, and leading academic hospitals.
Lead high-calibre research with the opportunity to publish in peer-reviewed scholarly journals. An ICES satellite is on campus, providing the opportunity for access to its extensive holdings of Ontario’s population health data.
