Testimonials

 

Research Trainee for Practice-Based Research & Innovation - Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre
The MScHQ Program at Queen’s University has allowed me to form valuable partnerships and share evidence based practices with quality and safety leaders across the healthcare system. The excellent faculty and staff provided me with great opportunities to learn and have supported me both during the program and after matriculation. I strongly recommend the MScHQ Program to those who are interested in advancing their knowledge and careers in healthcare quality, risk and safety.

Together, the MBA and MScHQ have allowed me to develop a vast network within and outside of healthcare and have provided me with a unique perspective of the healthcare industry.

Staff Neonatologist - Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre
The workload was acceptable (even to a family and full-time position) but even when busy, it was interesting and challenging in a positive way.
    ~ Asaph Rolnitsky

 

Manager, Quality Improvement - Ontario Health 
I would definitely recommend this program to someone who was looking for a more in-depth and comprehensive exploration of QI [Quality Improvement] and PS [Patient Safety] - the interdisciplinary nature of the program can't be beat.

I used the skills and knowledge gained in the MScHQ program to help family physicians build and establish their patient medical homes through quality improvement initiatives.

Regional Director - Workplace Health & Safety, Northern Health Authority
I loved the Healthcare Law course so much that one year after completing the MScHQ program I returned to school full-time to study law. The program was very interesting and the relationships built are still strong 4 years after finishing.
    ~ Melanie Maracle

 

Patient Safety Coordinator - The Ottawa Hospital
I work in the area of Indigenous Health and Quality Improvement. I joined the MScHQ program because I wanted to gain knowledge, and apply theory into practice. My goal is to empower others and help improve them.
