Distinctive features of our MSc program in Health Science, Technology and Policy (HSTP) include an emphasis on skill acquisition, using problem-based approaches to understand health issues and sectors, and participation in collaborative interdisciplinary research projects. The program design is facilitated by the cohort model, which allows for collaboration between students from various academic backgrounds to improve their understanding of complex problems in the broad field of health, and provides opportunities for students to enhance their learning experience by working together. The professional relationships formed by students in each cohort, as well as the opportunities to meet and work with experts across health sectors and disciplines, will provide additional value to students as they prepare for their professional careers.

At least one university-level course in statistics is also required for admission. Applicants judged to be generally acceptable but deficient in some aspect of preparation may be asked to complete course-work in addition to the program requirements. In addition to transcripts and letters of reference, application packages will include a statement of interest explaining how the applicant's career goals are aligned with the program and a statement of expertise, including previous research and/or work experience. The admissions committee will also consider the requirement for an appropriate balance of academic backgrounds to provide the disciplinary expertise required for the group projects, which are designed to represent a mixed-discipline workplace in the health sector.
