Clinical Epidemiology and Health Services Research
An enduring partnership exists between ICES and the Clinical Epidemiology and Health Services Research Program of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. Established in the late 1980s, Clinical Epidemiology (CE) is one of four research disciplines at Sunnybrook. CE scientists explore the causes, consequences and treatment of disease using a patient-focused approach.
The two organizations work closely together to improve the delivery of health care services and the treatment of disease in Ontario. This unique working relationship has resulted in many intertwined research projects, joint faculty appointments, and co-coordinated special events.
In addition, ICES and CE collaborate to provide excellence in research training through an accredited Academic Program in clinical epidemiology and health services research for graduate students and fellows.
