In line with CReATe’s strategic goals, the CReATe Research Training Program provides the highest level of education in research methodologies to prepare the next generation of researchers and physicians in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. We offer the following training opportunities:
Summer Student and Coop Training Program
Since 2010, CReATe has been offering 3 to 4 month hands-on research internships for undergraduate and medical students. Trainees are paired with senior researchers that provide day-to-day supervision and guidance on an assigned research project. This program enables trainees to build and showcase critical thinking skills, formulate project objectives and develop research communication skills. Applications for our summer 2018 program should be submitted by January 2018.
Dr. Librach holds cross-appointments at the Department of Physiology, and the Institute of Medical Sciences (IMS) at the University of Toronto, and supervises MSc and PhD students from both departments. Students have the opportunity to gain technical skills, build collaborative networks and showcase their research findings at national and international conferences.
