The Collaborative Training Program in Musculoskeletal Health Research (CMHR) provides undergraduate summer students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and clinician scientists in training an innovative, integrated curricula focused on core concepts associated with biomedical, engineering, clinical and health services research in bone and joint health.

The goals of the program are:

i) to provide trainees with essential transdisciplinary knowledge to break down potential barriers to collaboration and

ii) to impart pertinent transferable skills to trainees, thereby enhancing their career trajectories.

We have developed an integrated training approach that combines in-class learning, interactive lab modules, workshops, and seminars specifically designed to provide trainees with a strong foundation in the transdisciplinary aspects of musculoskeletal research. Topics include biological mechanisms, bioengineering and engineering approaches, imaging, movement sciences, clinical research designs, and knowledge translation and exchange.
