Collaborative Graduate Program in Women's Health


The Collaborative Program in Women's Health provides interdisciplinary training in women's health research and practice for graduate students at the University of Toronto with the goal of:

  • Helping students develop shared understandings of the complex interactions of biology and environment, sex and gender;
  • Providing students with the necessary skill set to undertake and lead interdisciplinary, collaborative health care research projects;
  • Enhancing mutually beneficial relationships among researchers and practitioners of women's health across the university and its affiliated teaching hospitals.

**NEW** Please see our special graduate student issue of "Women's Health & Urban Life, May 2013" with introduction from the Director of the Collaborative Program in Women's Health, Dr. Gillian Einstein.
