There are a number of ways to engage with and learn from our expert staff at THETA and the BRU including:

Formal mentorship through courses at University of Toronto’s Institute for Health Policy, Management and Evaluation Masters and Doctoral programs with emphasis on the Health Services Research (HSR) and Clinical Epidemiology and Health Care Research (CEHCR) streams. The below list outlines courses taught in the 2019-2020 academic year and which professors are accepting new students.

THETA and the BRU also hold yearly courses including our HTA Institute & R workshops as well as our ongoing THETA and ClinEpi rounds held weekly Friday afternoons from 1-2pm. 

Volunteer with us! Mentorship is highly encouraged outside of these streams and graduate students interested in the areas of Clinical Epidemiology, Health Economics, Health Technology Assessment, Clinical Trials and ELSI+ (Ethical, Legal and Social Implications) are welcome to send our scientists an email stating their interest, background and attaching their CV for consideration.
