Description

This half-credit core course is open to MSc and PhD students and is a prerequisite for any PhD student interested in the Advanced Topics course. The course objectives are:

  • to provide students an enhanced understanding of the breadth of research in resuscitation science; and
  • to ensure that students with disparate fields of research enquiry assemble to discuss common areas of interest, thereby further reinforcing a spirit of interdisciplinary research.

Length:  Full year (Fall and Winter sessions)

Advanced Topics in Resuscitation Science Research (MSC4002H)

The course is administered through the Institute for Medical Sciences and is open to graduate students enrolled in the CSRS who have completed the prerequisite Foundations in Resuscitation Science Research (MSC4001H) core course. This advanced course is for 0.5 credit and is designed to counter the isolation of late-stage thesis work; to assist students to establish contact with like-minded colleagues; set the stage for on-going collaborative work groups; and to facilitate the timely completion of projects and prepare students who intend to enter academia and other fields. The overall course objectives of the course are to provide doctoral students:

  •  an opportunity to present their research-in-progress in small group sessions with feedback about their presentation skills and research content by both a faculty facilitator and their peers;
  • a forum for the exploration of methodological, theoretical and professional development issues in the emerging inter-disciplinary field of Resuscitation Sciences;
  • opportunities to learn good leadership and collaboration skills;
  • opportunities to improve writing and presentation skills; and
  • help to move along methods and analytical sections of their thesis

The course is administrated by the CSRS Research Education Coordinator. All queries related to course enrollment, and other administrative issues should be addressed to CSRSInfo@smh.ca or 416 834 6060 x 7843.
