Student Ambassador

Student Ambassadors mandates are to provide a channel of communication to potential applicants, engage current students in personal and professional development, and foster relationships with alumni. The Ambassadors are a very engaged and motivated group and they are a great help and resource to the program.

The best way to contact a Student Ambassador is via e-mail. Please put "Question to Ambassador" in the subject line to ensure that your message doesn't get lost. Please also note that all ambassadors are volunteers as well as current graduate students with busy schedules, so kindly allow 48 hours for their responses.

The current Student Ambassador for the MSc HSEd program is: Dilshan Pieris, Masters Candidate Health Science Education pierisdi@mcmaster.ca
