The Graduate Program in Health (specialized field in Health Policy & Equity) is intended for graduates from a variety of disciplines, including programs related to social policy, social justice and human rights as well as policy practitioners and professionals interested in pursuing a research oriented graduate degree.

The increasing cultural, linguistic and racial diversity of the Canadian population and the challenges diverse populations face in accessing healthcare in the broader global community make the issues related to health equity particularly complex from both national and international contexts.

The program offers a comprehensive curriculum covering major scholarly perspectives. The structure and environment of the field encourage advanced research, new scholarship and opportunities to contribute to the discipline, enabling a multi-disciplinary group of students to explore health policy in relation to equity and international perspectives.
