Graduate Course in Regenerative Medicine
MSC7000Y REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
There is a limit of 40 students across Canada.
The graduate course in regenerative medicine is designed to offer a broad-based trans-disciplinary overview of the current concepts and issues related to the field of regenerative medicine.
This course is unique in its breadth and subject matter and similar courses are currently non-existent in Canadian graduate programs. The primary objective of the course is to provide a state-of-the-art review of various aspects of regenerative medicine including background material, the key scientific components of the field of regenerative medicine, and ethical, economic and other issues important to regenerative medicine.
This course will be applicable to all students interested in the field of regenerative medicine, whether their interests and career goals are in basic sciences, clinical epidemiology, bioethics, or other areas.
Weekly lectures will feature members of the program faculty. They will be grouped thematically and will address a breadth of topics. Lectures will occur in a classroom setting at the University Health Network, and will be broadcast live via webcast for trainees across Canada.
Journal clubs throughout the course will allow for collaboration between students of various disciplines to discuss various regenerative medicine articles.
The course is offered at the University of Toronto and online for graduate students across Canadian Universities. It is a full academic year course and credit weight vary by institution. Please contact your university to obtain weighting details.
