Using knowledge and skills acquired in their postgraduate studies, students will translate what they have learned into practice via this capstone experience. Students will engage in both individual and group-based work in partnership with industry. Using leadership, teamwork, research and critical thinking, students will consider sustainable approaches to address complex population health issues. Projects may include: a program plan or evaluation, policy analysis, extended rapid review, health impact assessment or data analysis, amongst others. The project will be practice-focused and supported by a range of online or face to face content, regular group meetings and an academic topic leader.
