About Master of Health Science at The University of British Columbia

Program Overview

The Master of Health Science (MHSc) degree is a degree designed to give the graduate strong clinical research methodology skills that can be applied to their academic and clinical interests. The program is adapted towards students who have an MD or equivalent (e.g., dentistry or veterinary medicine), and want to gain skills in applying epidemiological and statistical methods to evaluating and conducting clinical research.

Students pursue course work in clinical research skills. These skills will include epidemiological design and analysis, systematic reviews, clinical trial design, data analysis and presentation. Qualitative as well as program and economic evaluation methodology courses are available. The underlying precepts for all courses are critical thinking skills. There will be an opportunity to explore health policy and population health concepts through a limited number of electives that are part of the program.

What sets the UBC program apart?

This is the only program in B.C. that offers formal training in clinical research methods to MDs (and equivalents). The program is ideally suited for residents, fellows, junior faculty and others who wish to incorporate clinical research into their career plans. The program is flexible and can be done on a part-time basis, allowing students to continue their clinical training or practice, while in the program.

Career Options

Upon graduation, students will be able to carry out clinical research in their area of specialization, as an independent researcher or a member of a research team. The MHSc degree makes graduates highly competitive for academic positions in health science centres and for research positions in industry.
