Message from the Director
Welcome to the website of the Collaborative Program in Musculoskeletal Sciences (CPMS) website. This multidisciplinary program aims to enhance the experience of graduate students by strengthening their education to carry out musculoskeletal research, fostering multi-disciplinary approaches to musculoskeletal research, educating students as to how their work fits into the larger community of musculoskeletal research that stretches from bench to bedside to society, and to create leaders in the field of musculoskeletal sciences who are capable of bringing about transformational change.
The Collaborative Program offers a Foundation course that covers musculoskeletal physiology, disease, clinical treatments and basic science. There is a monthly seminar which reflects the breadth of expertise of this program at which invited experts present their most recent research. CPMS also holds a Research Day that provides the students an opportunity to present their work and interact with the members of the Collaborative Program, which includes internationally renowned investigators from across the University, to foster collaborations and provide unique networking opportunities.
Participating units include the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, Departments of Surgery, Orthopedics, Medicine, Exercise Science, Dentistry, Pharmacology, Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology, and Music as well as the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering, IHPME, and Institute of Medical Sciences. Although we are not a degree granting program your academic transcript will note that you also graduated from this Collaborative Program. Please note that you must apply to CPMS through a Collaborating Graduate Department whose requirements must be fulfilled.
