Programs & Admission Requirements

 

Master’s and Doctoral Level

 

 Admission Requirements

Applicants who wish to enroll in the collaborative program must apply to the program as well as apply to and be admitted to a graduate degree program in one of the participating units .  In addition to the application requirements of the participating unit, the following documentation is mandatory as part of the Collaborative Program in Musculoskeletal Sciences (CPMS) application process.

• Application form (attachment below)
• A curriculm vitae
• A maximum one page letter explaining how the applicant's program of study and specific research interest relates to musculoskeletal science signed by the trainee and their Supervisor
• Copy of the participating unit program acceptance

 

Master's Program Requirements

• Satisfy requirements of the participating unit degree program and graduate unit
• Complete the required CPMS Core Course:  MSC3001H, Foundations In Musculoskeletal Science
• Attend and participate in 12 seminars of the SRM3335H Seminar Series (CR/NCR) 
• Complete a thesis or major project or placement in the area of musculoskeletal sciences under the supervision of a collaborative program core faculty.

 


Doctoral Program Requirements

• Satisfy requirements of the participating degree program and graduate unit
• Complete the required CPMS Core Course: MSC3001H, Foundations In Musculoskeletal Science
• Attend and participate in 18 seminars of the SRD4445H Doctoral Seminar Series (CR/NCR)
• Complete a thesis or major project or placement in the area of musculoskeletal sciences under the supervision of a collaborative program core faculty.

Students enrolled in the Collaborative Program at the master’s level who transfer to the doctoral level will have the course MSC3001H Foundations in Musculoskeletal Science counted toward the completion of the doctoral collaborative program requirements.

Students who transfer from the Master's degree and collaborative program will be required to attend 18 seminars in total over the course of the Master's and Doctoral collaborative program.

Where a student who has completed the collaborative program at the Master's level wishes to enroll in the collaborative program at the Doctoral level, the student will not be required to repeat the core course, Foundations of Musculoskeletal Science, but will be required to attend and participate in 18 seminars of the SRD4445H Doctoral seminar series and complete the Doctoral thesis in the area under the supervision of the Graduate Faculty Member.

 


Completion of Program Requirements

All students enrolled in the Collaborative Program must complete the requirements of the Collaborative Program, in addition to those requirements for the degree program in their home graduate unit. The Collaborative Program Director is responsible for certifying the completion of the Collaborative Program requirements. The participating unit is solely responsible for the approval of the student’s home degree requirements.

Upon certification by the Collaborative Program Director that all requirements of the Collaborative Program have been fulfilled, the designation “Completed [session date] – Collaborative Graduate Program in Musculoskeletal Science” is shown on the graduate transcript. The student's participating graduate unit recommends the granting of the degree.

 

Transfer Students

The master’s and doctoral students attend the same seminar series. Students registered in the Collaborative program who transfer from the master’s to the doctoral program are expected to attend at least 18 seminars in total within the SRM3335H and SRD4445H course codes.
