About

The Master of Health Sciences (MHSc) program from University of Ontario Institute of Technology focuses on providing students with opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills required to conduct high-quality research projects that culminate in a master's thesis or major project.

Overview

Fields

Graduate training focuses on research conducted in one of three key areas in the Health Sciences at University of Ontario Institute of Technology:

  • Community, Public and Population Health
  • Health Informatics
  • Kinesiology

Community, Public and Population Health

Students in the Community, Public and Population Health stream will develop a broad understanding of how the physical and social context shapes health, illness and health care. In particular, this includes research and analysis of cultural and economic differences and their implications for health and health care for diverse populations. Students will learn strategies to engage communities in efforts to reduce illness and promote health.

Health Informatics

Students in the Health Informatics stream will develop strategies to actively participate in multidisciplinary collaborations with diverse groups (e.g., patients, clinicians, health care managers, computer scientists, engineers) and will learn to assess and deploy the latest in computing and informatics systems to support efficient health care delivery. The Health Informatics stream prepares students to identify, develop and manage health care information systems that support health care administration, management, policy, training, clinical management and clinical research.

Kinesiology

Students in the Kinesiology stream will synthesize current research and integrate practical and theoretical knowledge to understand how and why exercise and physical activity can be used as an intervention to promote health and well-being in a range of populations, including those with developmental delays; children and adolescents; adults with chronic pain, cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic, psychiatric and neurological disease; as well as recreational and high-performance athletes. Students will have the option of diverse research experiences in the kinesiology area ranging from intensive laboratory-based studies with human populations to interventional studies with special populations.
