If you are interested in participating in the above modules, please fill out the registration form.

Each Module takes four weeks to complete. You will need to set aside about four hours per week to work on the Modules from your workplace or home.

You can register on line for the course at the following web site: http://www.mcgill.ca/hssaccess/trhpp/m2intro/supervisors/course

Once registered you will become part of a multi-disciplinary community of learners participating in a module together with the support of the instructional teaching team. The interdisciplinary teaching team will engage on-line with participants and offer comments and help.

A certificate of attestation will be sent to those who participate weekly in the module. This attestation is applicable for your professional portfolio.
