August 2, 2016

The Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission has approved Saint Mary’s University’s membership in a consortium of universities in Atlantic Canada offering a Masters in Applied Health Services Research. The two-year program is offered in collaboration with Memorial University, the University of New Brunswick, and the University of Prince Edward Island. It entails eight web-courses, workshops, a residency, and thesis research. “Saint Mary’s has excellent research being pursued in health care systems, patient outcomes, and social, cultural and environmental factors that affect the health of populations, but this is our first graduate program where health is the main focus,” said Kevin Vessey, Dean of Graduate Studies and Research.
