Master of Science in Translational Health Sciences
Translational Health Sciences is a new and rapidly growing research field that seeks to “translate” or bridge the gap between advances in laboratory medical research and health care in clinical practice.
The Master of Science in Translational Health Sciences (MSTHS) professional program is designed to provide students with education and skills to enter a wide variety of career paths in translational health sciences.
Students will gain the experience they need to find careers implementing clinical trials in industry, clinical, and academic settings, as well as work for government agencies and community organizations that engage in disease prevention and health promotion.
- The MSTHS program includes courses in Cancer Cell Biology, Clinical Research Methods, Advanced Statistics, and Fundamentals of Oncology. A specialized seminar course in Professional Development will provide students with professional skills, including communication skills and networking skills within the health sciences, allowing them to succeed post-graduation. Students will learn and gain experience through hands-on clinical studies with local researchers preparing them for a wide range of career opportunities worldwide.
Student participation in clinical trials research at both University of Windsor and Windsor Regional Hospital will also be an important step to growing the capacity for health care research in Windsor-Essex County and will produce new scholarship for improving disease diagnosis and treatment.
This program is not eligible for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) at this time (pending Ministry approval).
