The Master of Medical Studies (MMS) program provides foundational research skills for physicians who want to develop a robust approach to answering health care questions. The program focuses on developing the necessary skills to acquire grant funding, obtain ethics approval, develop a research question and appropriate methodology, complete the research study, and finally write and present the results at conferences and in publication. Our goal is for learners to focus on health care problems in the north to improve the health status of all people in northern, rural, and remote communities. The MMS uses an asynchronous model to deliver the course material, the courses are available online. Students can complete this program remotely with a flexible schedule. There is no in-person requirement for this program.
The Master of Medical Studies is an online asynchronous program with no on-campus requirement for students.
It is designed to give students the freedom to work through their course material and research on their own time. The intent of the program is to equip physicians to do research relevant to their communities.
