Trainees will spend one year with a view to obtain an MSc, PhD, and/or combined Health Professional degree under the auspices of a degree-conferring graduate department, or as post-doctoral fellows in the discipline of Regenerative Medicine.
Participating universities and departments will confer degree status on program trainees from within existing graduate programs (e.g. the University of Toronto's Departments of Immunology and Laboratory Medicine, and its Institute for Medical Science). Each student accepted to the program will be supervised by a member of the Regenerative Medicine Training Program faculty who also has a faculty appointment in a graduate degree-granting department at one of the participating universities.
The Program will consist of several components which will employ a variety of approaches to teaching and learning, including innovative information technologies.
