Welcome to the Master of Science in Translational Health Science (MSTHS) Program 

Here below you can find information about our program objectives, course descriptions, faculty members, local partners, as well as links to relevant websites for applying to the program. Feel free to reach out and contact us if you have any questions about the program (contact information below)

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. In a modern-day approach to healthcare, successful research-programs utilize a multidisciplinary team of scientists, health professionals, economists, and statisticians working together to solve complex health and social problems. There is a need to offer students a training path that incorporates clinical science, public health, and basic biomedical research to accelerate the application of biological breakthroughs to human health. To address this opportunity, and the dearth of educated students with these skills, the Faculty of Science is offering a professional Master of Science in Translational Health Sciences (“MSTHS”) program.

Program Specific Admission Requirements:

  • Intake Semesters: We only intake students each year in May (all students begin with the Spring/Summer Semester)
  • Deadline for application: January 15th, 2023 for both Domestic Students and International Students
