Health Science Education Courses


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Faculty of Health Sciences

All courses are half courses. Additional information on program courses can be viewed at the Health Science Education website, http://fhs.mcmaster.ca/hsed/

Additional Thesis Information


The thesis project will reflect an area of mutual interest to the Student and Supervisor that is commensurate with graduate studies in health sciences education. The thesis project and dissertation should be started by the student in collaboration with the Supervisory Committee at the outset of the program. Students will be encouraged to present ongoing aspects of their thesis research during the Program’s second residency week (HS EDUC 707).


Thesis students will be required to obtain appropriate ethics approval.


Thesis Supervisors will be required to provide ongoing instruction and feedback to Thesis Students. Thesis students and supervisors should ensure that sufficient funds are available to complete proposed research projects prior to beginning thesis work. Thesis students must submit a written thesis and defend an oral thesis presentation (in person) before a Thesis Defense Committee comprised of the Supervisor, Supervisory Committee, An external examiner, and a Defense Chair


While distance studies are possible, it is the Program’s position that thesis students should be physically present to conduct research, meet with the members of their Supervisory committee, and attend HSED scholarship events at one of the McMaster University campuses.
