Management and Evaluation of a Pan-Canadian Graduate Training Program in Health Informatics
Hebert, Marilynne; Lau, Francis
Journal of Distance Education, v24 n1 p107-122 2010
Eight Canadian universities partnered to establish a Collaborative Health Informatics PhD/Postdoc Strategic Training Program (CHPSTP). The 6-year goal was to increase research capacity in health informatics in Canada. Three cohorts of 20 trainees participated in the training, which included online Research Learning Experiences, annual face-to-face workshops and conferences. Different management models were explored to more closely align funding, user engagement and deliverables. Evaluation included measures of success at program, faculty and student levels. Data collection templates facilitated reporting and program management. Linkages between user engagement and funding should be built into the grant proposal. (Contains 2 tables.)
