Opportunities for Investigators
For local clinicians, researchers, and healthcare organizations, the opportunity to engage a McMaster learner in a research or quality improvement project provides voluntary capacity to address specific questions or initiatives that otherwise would not be possible. Learners receive planning and methodological support through the campus Research Lead. Overall, research activities strengthen innovation in the Waterloo-Wellington Region.
Projects can range from scientific experimental and observational studies, continuous quality improvement initiatives, program evaluation, and review/development of best practice and policy. The projects can be very specific to clinical issues or broadly focused on health service issues. Learner engagement in the projects can also range. As some projects may span numerous phases and timeframes different learners may engage in the same project over time. Other projects may include a single learner and last several weeks to months. Learners can engage in new or existing projects. The options are open and dependent on learner and mentor needs and capacity.
We invite local clinicians, researchers, and healthcare organizations to engage our learners in research and quality improvement projects by becoming informal research mentors.
