Update:  Due to COVID-19, the 2021 first-year MScHQ course HQRS 840: Introduction to Quality, Risk and Safety and second-year course HQRS 846: Human Factors in Healthcare will be held online over a series of weeks instead one week of full day coursework. The additional fees associated with the in-person activities for these courses will be waived, and students will be responsible for obtaining their own text books. All other MScHQ courses continue to run online as normal. We appreciate your patience during these challenging times. We will continue to provide updates for the 2022 Intensive Weeks as they become available.

Students normally attend two (2) in-person intensive week sessions during the program that allow you to establish relationships with your fellow students and faculty members. The intensive weeks take place in July/August of each year in Kingston, Ontario. The first-year intensive week is HQRS 840: Introduction to Quality, Risk and Safety and the second-year intensive week is HQRS 846: Human Factors in Healthcare.

Textbooks, accommodations and meals are included in your tuition and program fees (transportation fees are your responsibility).
