The Master of Science in Health Science Education program offers online courses in learning and curriculum, simulation/technical & non-technical skills, online learning, educational leadership, assessment and evaluation, and research methods. In addition, two mandatory in-person residency periods must be completed. The program offers students two completion pathways: a course-based option which is offered in online format through part-time studies (full time may be considered with special permission), or a thesis-based option offered in either part-time or full-time studies. Non-health practitioners will only be considered for the full-time, thesis stream.

The program will be highly accessible through blended delivery of online and in-class formats. Click here to apply (deadline for admissions is January 15th, 2018).


The Residency Period for 2018 is June 4th - 8th, 2018. The HS II Residency Week is 4 days long, June 5th - 8th, 2018.

The Geoffrey Norman Day in Education Research will be June 6th.
