Squaring Circles: The Gap for Interdisciplinary Trainees in a Discipline-Driven Academy
Sibbald, Shannon L.; Peirson, Leslea; Boyko, Jennifer
International Journal of Higher Education, v4 n3 p63-67 2015
The growth of interdisciplinary health services research training programs across Canada has in part been due to acknowledgement of and efforts to bridge a gap between researchers, policy makers and practitioners. Consequently, a new breed of interdisciplinary health services researchers (many of whom have specialization in knowledge translation) are now ready to meet complex system demands only to find limited career opportunities. We argue that the investments for advancing interdisciplinary health services training have not been paralleled with post-training positions in academia and elsewhere, and change must occur.
