This Master of Clinical Science degree program uses a variety of approaches to teaching and learning, and links advanced clinical practice to critical appraisal of research evidence and the application of knowledge to practice.
Candidates must be a health care professional with a master’s and/or doctoral degree in a related field who: 1) are registered with, or is eligible for registration with, the relevant regulatory body, if applicable; 2) has considerable clinical experience in an interprofessional, collaborative practice related to skin health/wound care; and 3) demonstrated accomplishment in the models of learning used in the Wound Healing field that include interactive remote/online teaching, onsite clinical skills labs, and competency-based evaluations. The successful applicant will show evidence of contributing to equity, diversity, and inclusion in academia and/or clinical practice. Preference will be given to candidates with previous university-based, graduate-level, teaching experience. The selected appointee will have demonstrated capability to teach current knowledge, advanced clinical skills, and evidence-informed clinical decision- making related to skin health/wound care practice.
