Canadian Child Health Clinician Scientist Program – Programme canadien de cliniciens- chercheurs en santé de l’enfant
The Canadian Child Health Clinician Scientist Program (CCHCSP) is a transdisciplinary training program for the next generation of clinician-scientists in child and youth health research in Canada. CCHCSP provides support for these highly qualified child health clinician candidates to develop their requisite knowledge and skills for a career as an independent scientist in child health research. Trainees engage in research training and a core curriculum that delivers a common multidisciplinary language of research, while imparting professional skills and values. Research training is supervised by a research mentor and advisory committee and is structured to facilitate excellence in research with an interdisciplinary focus.
There are currently 17 participating Child Health Research Training Centres within the CCHCSP, providing education and collaborative experiences across Canada.
