IHPME to Collaborate with Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College on Education Activities

February 4, 2019

The Institute of Health Policy Management and Evaluation (IHPME) is pleased to announce a new partnership between the Institute and the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) that aims to foster greater CMCC logocollaboration and promote educational research among the students and faculty of the CMCC’s Clinical Sciences Graduate Studies Diploma Program.

In continuing IHPME’s efforts to advance intellectual exchange across all areas of health services research and learning, this partnership will allow eligible students of the CMCC to apply to the Master of Science in Health Services Research (HSR) at IHPME and grant recognition for up to two graduate level courses taken at CMCC as MSc HSR course credits.

In addition, qualified CMCC faculty will be eligible for consideration as adjunct or status faculty within IHPME allowing them to serve on thesis committees for students participating in this opportunity.

“IHPME has a long and successful history of working with faculty and students with a chiropractic background,” said Rhonda Cockerill, Interim Director of IHPME. “We look forward to this new initiative which will strengthen these ties.”

“As collaborative health care is increasingly recognized as an optimal model for patients, we are delighted to reach this agreement which will foster many of the same benefits to our students and faculty in terms of sharing resources and generating new solutions,” said Christine Bradaric-Baus, Vice-President, Academic of CMCC.

As the largest graduate unit situated within the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto, IHPME is committed to providing an integrative space where students, faculty, health care researchers, partners and providers can empower one another to transform the way we think, lead and act in our efforts to reshape the health care system.

Together with the CMCC, a leader in evidence-based chiropractic education and research, this collaborative relationship will help to further discussions and address shared issues of integrated care, health promotion and system performance within Ontario.
