Education

Interested in research with us?  Want to partner directly with Orthopaedic Surgeons and Scientists from a variety of disciplines?  Come complete your research in modern lab facilities equipped with advanced technology.  Our collaborative research approach allows your work to make a direct and timely impact on patient care.  Many of our graduates have gone on to work for large multinational companies as well as small to medium sized enterprises.  You can register for a graduate program with us, through your own academic department: Engineering and Applied Science, Arts and Science, Health Science or Life Sciences.

NEW!  Biomedical Engineering Program

Queen's University has designed a collaborative program that allows graduate students at the Master's or Doctoral level to access courses and expertise from Electrical, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering Departments.  An interdisciplinary curriculum encourages an enhanced focus on biomedical engineering research, providing students with the technical and academic skills necessary to graduate with a specialization in biomedical engineering and pursue a career in this field.  For more information visit their website:  Biomedical Engineering Program. 

NSERC CONNECT! CREATE Program

The Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program is an initiative of the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

The CONNECT! Training Program provides a unique, enriched, and multidisciplinary training opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students and post-doctoral fellows that are in the process of developing novel, effective treatment approaches for soft connective tissue injuries.  In particular, they are exploring new strategies to generate replacement articular cartilage for the knees and hips, anterior cruciate ligaments (ACLs), discs in the skin, and fat tissue.  The strategies have been developed by a group of researchers with varied yet complementary expertise working at the interface between Engineering and the Health Sciences.

The trainees have opportunities to work with the facilities of collaborators at four different institutions including:  Queen's University, University of Calgary, Western University, and the University of Toronto.  Each trainee undertakes an internship with the following participating biomedical companies:  CellScale, Octane Biotech, and Depuy Synthes Canada.  These trainees will be highly sought after by the growing Canadian biomedical industry as they will have developed a unique skill set for which there is a significant need, through the CONNECT! training program.  Moreover, the multidisciplinary environment of the program will result in novel translatable strategies that could form the basis of new start up companies, which could potentially be initiated and led by the graduates from the program.
