Programs and courses

Educating and inspiring the next generation of community health leaders.

At CHS, we offer a vast array of programs and courses designed to help students explore community health and pinpoint their areas of specific interest. We’re committed to training the next generation of community health leaders who will impact not just the health of Canadians but populations across the globe.

We support programs for students at all levels - undergraduate, graduate and PhDs - as well as continuing education options. At the undergraduate level, our department provides academic support for Undergraduate Medical Education and the Bachelor of Health Sciences program. Our graduate program leads to MSc, PhD and course-based MDCS degrees in seven specializations (which are organized among our three divisions) - Biostatistics, Community Health Rehabilitation and Disability Studies, Epidemiology, Health Economics, Health Services Research, Medical Education and Population/Public Health.

For postgraduates we offer medical education in Public Health and Preventative Medicine, accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. And since we’re part of a world-renowned university, our students have the freedom to shape and influence their own course of study to follow where their interest - and passion - leads them.
 

Bachelor of Health Sciences - Health & Society Major

CHS faculty supports the Health & Society major by offering research supervision and teaching support.

The program is designed to encompass the full spectrum of health sciences education - from cell to society - to provide students with a well-rounded background in health sciences that will enable them to pursue further opportunities in the global health care sector.
