Health Information Science and Collaborative Specialization

A Collaborative Specialization is an intra-university graduate field of study that provides an additional multidisciplinary experience for students enrolled in and completing the degree requirements for one of a number of approved Master’s and/or PhD programs. Students meet the admission requirements of, and register in, the participating (or “home”) program but complete, in addition to the degree requirements of that program, the additional requirements specified by the Collaborative Specialization. The degree conferred is that of the home program, and the completion of the Collaborative Specialization is indicated by a transcript notation indicating the additional specialization that has been attained (e.g., PhD in HIS with specialization in Global Health Systems in Africa).

There is an established collaboration between HIS and the Global Health Systems in Africa program. For more information, visit the Schulich Medicine & Dentistry website.
