Health: Science, Technology and Policy

The master’s degree in Health: Science, Technology and Policy (HSTP) brings together expertise from science, business, social sciences, arts and humanities, public administration, engineering and industrial design to focus on the broad and multi-faceted challenges facing the health sector. This pioneering program was created to meet a growing demand in the health sector for the skill set and knowledge that will be acquired in the MSc program. Close association with external partners in public, private and community organizations is a core element of the program and will provide networking opportunities for students.

We also offer two diplomas in this area, one for current students and one for professionals.

Capital Advantage

Opportunities for networking and employment in the health sector abound in Ottawa as the national capital is home to many public sector and non-government agencies, including the Canadian Institute for Health Information, the Canadian Medical Association, Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada, as well as hospitals and a range of community organizations.
