Located at the University of Toronto, the Collaborative Specialization in Women’s Health is the first collaborative graduate program of its kind in Canada, and likely internationally. The program’s home faculty is the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, but its disciplinary representation spans more than 13 other graduate programs at UofT, ranging from the Institute of Medical Sciences to the Department of Religion.
The purpose of the program is to provide graduate students across the university the opportunity to interact with, and be mentored by, more senior researchers engaged in women’s health research, and to gain experience in the multidisciplinary approaches necessary to do women’s health research. Regardless of the department or faculty to which they belong, all students are given scholarly opportunities to interrogate their projects in the context of women’s health.
The program includes shared learning experiences, including monthly student seminar meetings and a core course, Gender and Health, CHL5109. Learn more about the Collaborative Specialization in Women’s Health.
