For September 2018 admissions, all applicants to a program with Specialization in Epidemiology, and proposing to conduct a thesis with Dr. Vicki Kristman, will be considered for an additional Entrance Scholarship of $6,000. Preference will be given to MHSc applicants. Two awards of $6,000 each will be available to the most competitive applicants for 2018 entry. This Epidemiology Entrance Scholarship is made available through part of Dr. Vicki Kristman's CIHR New Investigator Award.
Dr. Kristman is also seeking to support a Master's thesis student to work on a CIHR-funded project titled "Work disability prevention in Ontario: testing a supervisor training intervention". A stipend of $16,000 plus $3,000 for travel and expenses is available to support a student over the two-year Master’s program, preferably a MHSc student. The student will be expected to contribute to the project and conduct a secondary analysis of data from this project for their thesis. Please contact Dr. Kristman for more details on the project.
