Information for Students

ICES, in collaboration with the Evaluative Clinical Sciences and Health Services Research Program at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, provides educational opportunities for students in health services research. Our environment allows students to access a large collection of Ontario administrative and clinical databases for graduate research (ICES faculty supervision is required.)

Most of our trainees are enrolled in a graduate program at an Ontario university. We also accept applications from university faculty on sabbatical leave who are interested in conducting health services research.

At any given time, ICES has 40 to 50 students working on projects that access our data, including masters, doctoral and post-doctoral students. Many of our student projects have resulted in high-impact publications that received significant media attention.

After completing their graduate program, many of our students have gone on to have accomplished careers in health services research. Many ICES students have become ICES scientists, including:

Students interested in accessing ICES data as part of their graduate program requirements are encouraged to contact individual scientists.
