The program is the result of a partnership between the faculties of Health Sciences, Engineering and Business.
Students are given extensive training, along with research and internship experience. The combination will give you the unique expertise you will need to use technology to help improve and develop the healthcare system in Canada. You will learn from McMaster faculty, visiting academic and industry speakers, researchers and your fellow students. There are three components of the full-time, thesis option: 5 one-term courses, development and oral defence of a written thesis, and an eight-month internship.
