The MSc program is completed over 2 years whilst enrolled full time. Students complete core courses in advanced topics and seminars in interdisciplinary health sciences.

The research thesis is undertaken throughout the program, and in conjunction, students participate in twice-yearly Graduate Advisory Committee meetings, give an annual research presentation, and give a final research seminar presentation. The final thesis defence includes completion and evaluation of the written thesis and an oral examination of the thesis (viva).

We also offer a collaborative specialization in Data Science for MSc candidates.
