HEALTH SYSTEMS AND HEALTH EQUITY RESEARCH GROUP
CENTRE FOR ADDICTION AND MENTAL HEALTH
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

2011 STUDENTSHIP PROGRAM

The objective of the HSHER – Studentship Program is to provide undergraduate and graduate students who have an interest in addictions and mental health services research an opportunity to gain research experience and skills in an inter-disciplinary environment, by working on projects in collaboration with Research Scientists and a Knowledge Exchange Manager in the Research group. HSHER has a strong focus on diversity and health equity research

Our studentship program provides a three-pronged approach to training.  First, there is an emphasis on hands-on learning and practical application of skills.  Each trainee will work with their mentor on ongoing projects.  Trainee educational objectives are jointly determined by the supervising faculty member and the trainee.  As a result, the summer experience is tailored to each student-supervisor team.  Second, for more structured learning, trainees participate in seminars with Unit faculty and staff to discuss issues that are often encountered in research.  Past series topics have included research ethics, healthcare reform and cultural representations of mental health and addictions.

Some of the scientists in the HSHER Group include:
