The Faculty of Nursing at the University of Manitoba now offers a doctoral program with a unique and innovative focus on health policy and knowledge translation.
The program integrates areas of philosophy of science and knowledge translation along with health care services, systems, and policy research as a foundation to nurture health researchers within the discipline of nursing.
The Manitoba Centre for Nursing and Health Research (MCNHR), which resides within the Faculty of Nursing, is a rich resource for doctoral students, providing access to data analysis consultation and connection with a network of researchers and health leaders.
“This program will prepare researchers who will work to improve health care, health policy, and health care delivery for Manitobans,” said Dr. Dauna Crooks, Dean of the Faculty of Nursing. “Graduates will be clinician scientists, faculty, policy analysts, and administrative researchers. As such, the possibilities for the province of Manitoba are endless.”
NOTE: Application to the program is now being accepted for the term beginning September 2012. Deadline for application is May 15, 2012. For more information, please follow the link below.
