Overview

The goal of the Collaborative Specialization in Resuscitation Sciences is to train scient​ists pursuing research in t​he optimal care of the acutely ill and injured patient and, ultimately, to create leaders in the discipline who will supervise others providing this level of scientific inquiry. The collaborative specialization appeals to students from a wide variety of backgrounds with an interest in any aspect of resuscitation science.

Resuscitation Sciences includes a number of medical areas such as trauma, critical care, emergency medicine, neurotrauma, anaesthesia, shock, sepsis, acute coronary syndrome, paediatric care, cardiovascular, peripheral vascular, and rehabilitation medicine. Many non-medicine disciplines such as engineering, basic science, and public health, as well as allied health professions such as nursing, pharmacy, and paramedicine, will find synergies in the Resuscitation Sciences specialization. Research programs can use methodologies ranging from molecular medicine and genomics through clinical trials and outcomes to engineering, health administration, and health prevention strategies. Resultant advances in knowledge will ultimately be applied to the clinical setting.

Interested students must first apply to and be accepted in one of the participating degree programs listed above, and then apply to the collaborative specialization. Students must follow a course of study acceptable to both the home unit and the collaborative specialization. Upon successful completion of the degree requirements of the participating home department and the collaborative specialization, students receive the notation "Completed Collaborative Specialization in Resuscitation Sciences" on their transcript and parchment.

Resuscitation Sciences: Master's Level

Admission Requirements

  • Collaborative specializations are administered under the auspices of the School of Graduate Studies.

  • Applicants must be accepted for admission to a participating graduate unit and comply with the admission procedures of that unit before applying to the Collaborative Specialization in Resuscitation Sciences.

  • Applicants must submit the following to the collaborative specialization committee:

    • ​​​a resumé or curriculum vitae (CV)

    • a personal statement explaining how their course of study and specific research interests relate to resuscitation science

    • a letter of recommendation from a faculty member, usually the thesis supervisor in a thesis-based graduate program, commenting on the student's academic abilities and likelihood for research success in the field of resuscitation sciences.

Specialization Requirements

  • Students must register in the master's degree program through one of the participating home graduate units. They must meet all respective degree requirements of the School of Graduate Studies and their participating home graduate unit.

  • In addition to meeting the home graduate unit program requirements, students will be required to:

    • ​​​take the core course MSC 4001H Foundations in Resuscitation Science Research

    • attend at least 75% of the SRM 3333H Resuscitation Sciences Graduate Seminar Series over two consecutive sessions

    • complete a thesis, comprehensive paper, or practicum (whichever is included in their course of study) in the area of resuscitation sciences under the supervision of a faculty member affiliated with the collaborative specialization

    • present their research at least once at either the Resuscitation in Motion scientific meeting or in the Foundations MSC 4001H core course.
