On November 18th 2022, Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Health announced a total investment of over $4.7M in the Health System Impact (HSI) Fellowship program, which provides talented PhD trainees and postdoctoral researchers a unique opportunity to work directly within health organizations to tackle real-world health system challenges.
This funding supports 18 PhD students and 25 postdoctoral fellows. Their research spans a wide range of health care priorities, from improving transitions in care and supporting the wellbeing of our health workforce to improving health care in rural areas and innovating long-term care.
One of the HSI 2022 fellows includes Jennifer Murray, a PhD Fellow (University of British Columbia), who is generating community-driven solutions to strengthen perinatal health systems.
