The Hannah Studentship offers undergraduate and MA students an opportunity to study and learn the techniques of historical research and to encourage future serious study of medical history.
The grant supports research in the area of the impact of technology on the practice of medicine and the delivery of healthcare services. The project may form part of an honours thesis, MA thesis, major research paper, or an elective project. The student may receive course credit for the work. The proposed research must have a clearly defined timeline to demonstrate that it is of a size capable of completion during the three-month period of the Studentship.
The research must be in the area of the impact of technology on the practice of medicine and the delivery of healthcare services. This research focus reflects AMS’ current strategic priority: AMS’s work advances a Canadian healthcare system through innovation and technology, while remaining rooted in compassion and our medical history. They convene networks, develop leaders, and fund crucial activities in healthcare scholarship, research, education, clinical practice, and medical history. Their work helps improve care for all Canadians.
