The Applied Health Sciences program is dedicated to improving health using inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary approaches. Students and faculty from diverse disciplines interact to enhance the student’s capacity for undertaking innovate research projects and generating new knowledge in the applied health domain.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    If the master’s degree does not meet the research based requirements, then the student will be required to complete a yearlong research course (AHS 7010, 6 credit hours) in the first year of the program, normally taught by the identified supervisor. This is in addition to the 12 credit hours of coursework required in the Applied Health Sciences PhD program.

    Finally, all applicants are required to communicate with a potential supervisor from the two participating units prior to application. The supervisor must agree to supervise the student with a letter of support and provide funding information.
    Additional Admission Requirements:
      In addition to the admission requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, applicants normally need a research-based master’s degree in a discipline related to Applied Health Sciences. A research-based master’s degree is one in which the institution identifies the program as research based (not professional), where the majority of the coursework is devoted to research, and that a thesis project represents the majority of the program relative to coursework.
