2018 Canadian Student Health Research Forum (CSHRF) – Deadline: March 2, 2018

2018 Canadian Student Health Research Forum (CSHRF)

Entering its 31st year, the 2018 Canadian Student Health Research Forum will take place on June 11 to 15 in Winnipeg. The aim of the CSHRF is to provide a venue for the networking, research exposure and recognition of Canada’s most promising research trainees in the health sciences. Complete details are available online: http://umanitoba.ca/outreach/conferences/research_days/index.html

UBC has been invited to nominate our top PhD students in health sciences for participation in the forum. A limited number of invited participants will also receive travel award funding from CIHR; see: https://www.grad.ubc.ca/awards/canadian-student-health-research-forum-cshrf-travel-award

The CSHRF and CIHR travel award are open to students from both UBC-V and UBC-O campuses.

Faculty – please submit your nominations to admissions@mech.ubc.ca by Friday, March 2, 2018

  • Graduate programs may nominate up to 5% of their PhD students in health sciences (for instance, if a program has 40 PhD students in health sciences, it could submit up to 2 nominees). Appropriate selection criteria are to be determined by the graduate programs. Please note that the symposium theme rotates from year to year and should not bias student selection.
  • Once the final nominees have been determined, the student(s) will be required to complete the 2018 CIHR National Competition Application Form by March 15, which our office will forward.

Should you have any questions about the process, please contact graduate.awards@ubc.ca.
