The Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME) trains Canada’s future health leaders and researchers through its research and professional graduate degree programs and its involvement in a range of collaborative specializations. Its unique interdisciplinary approach is ideally suited to today’s complex and rapidly changing health-care landscape.
IHPME’s professional degree programs provide individuals with the knowledge, skills, and strategic perspective necessary to assume leadership roles in the health-care system. Faculty members are the foremost thinkers, researchers, and practitioners influencing our health-care system today. Students are exposed to the latest evidence-informed research, thinking, and practice in the Health Administration program, leading to a Master of Health Science (MHSc) degree.
The MHSc program is geared to health managers and professionals who wish to acquire a graduate education in health administration. The program’s modular format allows learners to complete the degree without interrupting their careers. The learning experience is further enhanced by practicum placements and a curriculum shaped by strong relationships with leaders and top-performing organizations.
