WRTC - About

 

The Western Regional Training Centre for Health Services Research (WRTC) is an innovative and collaborative program designed to support the training of applied health services researchers across disciplines, sectors, and institutions, and equip them to address the research needs of a wide range of health-care policy makers.  WRTC students have access to additional training opportunities and receive an annual stipend and travel support.  Students attend workshops, institutes, and seminars funded by the WRTC, as well as the annual conference of the Canadian Association for Health Services and Policy Research (CAHSPR). 

Students can also gain unparalleled exposure to senior management and policy experts through practical field placements, which greatly enhance job opportunities following program completion.  Participation in the WRTC gives students the opportunity to network with colleagues from across western Canada, as well as from training sites located in Ontario, Quebec, and eastern Canada.  Graduate students (Master or PhD) may participate in the program as full students or affiliate students.  The WRTC attracts students from a broad range of disciplines and backgrounds, including clinical medicine, nursing, public health, psychology, public policy, economics, and sociology.

The WRTC is based at six universities in western Canada: University of Alberta, University of British Columbia, University of Calgary, University of Manitoba, University of Regina, and University of Saskatchewan. Graduate students (Master or PhD) may participate in the program as full students or as affiliate students.
