We are the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta, one of the world’s elite academic health sciences centres, where top students are taught by award-winning educators and mentored by renowned scientists in a dynamic learning environment.
We conduct our teaching, research and patient care in accordance with the highest international standards. We work with our partners in education, research and health care for the greater good of the local, regional and global community.
Outstanding areas of medical research at the University of Alberta include diabetes, obesity, virology, heart disease, motor control and rehabilitation, protein structure and function, and transplantation.
The MatCH Scholarship program is under the auspices of the Medical Sciences Graduate program in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. The Graduate Education Coordinators of each of the collaborating departments meet regularly regarding program needs and strategic planning, and adjudicate applications for two intakes per year (September and January). Once a student has selected a mentor for their degree, the Graduate Education Coordinator for that department supports them throughout their studies.
