The NSERC CREATE Program on Healthcare Operations and Information Management aims at tangibly improving the healthcare system across Canada via the contributions of its doctoral and post-doctoral trainees who research potential health care system efficiencies in information systems, communication technologies and operations management.

Our International Masters for Health Leadership Program (IMHL) provides graduates with a degree in Master of Management. The IMHL is a learning opportunity for managers from around the world who wish to enhance their leadership and managerial skills while creating positive change in their organizations and health care systems. Participants work in all manners of health care organizations, including hospitals, community care, public health, government ministries, international agencies, and foundations.

The MD-MBA Program recognizes that there is an increasing demand in the health care sector for physicians with management skills and expertise.
