Graduate Programs

Graduate students are an important part of the life of any research institution. Our faculty members mentor master’s and PhD students within each of their research programs.

In addition to positions at Women’s College Hospital, Women’s College Research Institute (WCRI) also supports graduate students studying women’s health across the University of Toronto in a variety of ways.

Collaborative Specialization in Women’s Health

The purpose of the Collaborative Specialization in Women’s Health is to provide graduate students across the University of Toronto the opportunity to interact with and be mentored by senior academics engaged in women’s health research. Students also gain critical experience employing multidisciplinary approaches necessary to comprehensively examine women’s health and the various biological and social determinants that shape women’s lives and well-being. Regardless of the department or faculty to which they belong, all students will be given scholarly opportunities to interrogate their projects in the context of women’s health.

Support for the Collaborative Specialization in Women’s Health comes from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health. Administrative assistance for the Specialization is provided by WCRI as part of the commitment to fostering a generation of women’s health scholars with the conceptual and methodological tools necessary to investigate questions from cell to society and devise solutions that will be meaningful in the many contexts in which women’s lives evolve.
