OPEN’s capacity-building team is enhancing training in pharmacy
practice and health services research by giving students an
opportunity to study the quality, outcomes and value of Ontario
pharmacist-led medication management services. We are providing
trainees at all levels of university study a broad variety of
individual and collaborative experiential and applied-learning
Student training focuses on developing health service research knowledge and skills that complement material provided by their respective institution’s programs while supporting OPEN’s research objectives.
Importantly, we give students an opportunity to learn from and network with knowledge users, our diverse team of researchers and other OPEN students. By combining research and practical learning opportunities, our trainees help to generate new research knowledge and, equally important, to see how that knowledge is applied, used and adopted.
Our students and trainees span all levels of study — from undergraduates on co-operative education placements and those completing work-study and independent study projects to graduate students, pharmacy students on research rotations and pharmacists in residency.
Please note that applications for graduate study, as well as for
undergraduate and co-op placements, are not made through OPEN.
OPEN’s researchers are faculty members across several universities and research institutions in Ontario. Students interested in pursuing graduate studies under the supervision of a faculty member participating in OPEN must meet the admission requirements of the graduate program at the researcher’s institution. Universities have a formal admission process that must be followed to be considered for graduate study.
