About the CSRS

Students who are enrolled in the CSRS attend seminar-type courses – a core course (0.5 CR), Foundations in Resuscitation Science Research and a Graduate Seminar Series (NR), which introduce them to myriad topics within the field of resuscitation research.

Topics include bioethics, clinical trials, health services, medical and engineering innovation, knowledge translation, basic science, social determinants and gender, health policy, simulation research, paramedicine, among others. Students at PhD level who have completed the Foundations core course are eligible to take the Advanced Topics in Resuscitation Science Research course (also 0.5CR), which is designed to assist students to establish contact with like-minded colleagues, to set the stage for on-going collaborative work groups, to facilitate the timely completion of projects and prepare students who intend to enter academia and other fields. All classes are led by faculty members who are actively involved in research across the 12 graduate units/institutes the program is affiliated to. The CSRS is also the lead training program for the Canadian Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (CanROC) – a pan-Canadian initiative to build research capacity and best practice in resuscitation.

The CSRS offers dedicated assistance with award/salary support applications and superlative opportunities for networking and mentoring. The program also offers 10 travel grants per year of up to $1000, for students enrolled in the program who are accepted to present or want to attend meetings or conferences outside the Greater Toronto Area.
