Canadian Child Health Clinician Scientist Program (CCHCSP)
CCHCSP provides support for highly qualified child health clinician candidates to develop their requisite knowledge and skills for a career as an independent scientist in child health research. Trainees engage in research training and a core curriculum in one of the participating Child Health Research Training Centres of the CCHCSP. The Research Education Office organizes meetings for the UBC-CCHCSP trainees to complete the curriculum.
