Scholar Stream

The Scholar Stream represents a commitment by the Department of Occupational Therapy to fostering a research culture, building research capacity, and enriching the MSc (OT) experience for students with outstanding academic records and a want for challenge. The Scholar Stream is for students who (i) have an interest in research, including the application of research to enhance clinical practice; (ii) are interested in contributing to an active research program in fields as diverse as childhood disability, healthy ageing, mental health, human rights, neurophysiology, chronic pain and bariatric care; and/or, (iii) think that they may be interested in pursuing a higher degree (PhD) in the future. 

Students admitted to the Scholar Stream complete a research internship; participate in a seminar series exploring cutting edge science and scholarship; and, complete an original study and treatise, under supervision.  

  • NOTE:  As of September 2019 the scholar stream program is no longer accepting new students.
