Graduate Program Courses
School of Population & Public Health
Graduate students specializing in the health services and policy research stream within the School of Population and Public Health are currently required to complete the following core courses:
- SPPH 542 (3) - Seminar: Issues in Canadian Health Policy Analysis of topical Canadian health policy issues in international context. Topics variable but include public/private financing, health care personnel, and pharmaceutical policy challenges.
- SPPH 548 (3) - Health Services Research Methods Assessing health services and systems, research design, measurement reliability and validity, common data sources used, measurement of quality of care and effectiveness and outcomes.
CHSPR has recently led a year-long national consultation process to explore degree attributes important for HSPR graduates. This will result in a curriculum that responds to the evolving needs for HSPR skills in a variety of health-related settings.
The information is being used by the SPPH Curriculum Committee to develop an expanded set of offerings and more focused programming in this area - stay tuned for updates.
