Current Opportunities

The Translational Research Program (TRP) at the University of Toronto is a unique Professional Master of Health Science (MHSc) program that is more than just a degree.  It is a hands-on leadership experience that will change the way you think. 

Become a professional health translator by learning to apply scientific knowledge to improve medicine, health, and care. Translational Research in health sciences is a field of inquiry that focuses on understanding efficient ways of applying knowledge to develop new or better processes, services and products in medicine, health and care delivery.

Act now! Register to the uOGlobal recognition

The University of Ottawa is offering a program that will allow you to set yourself apart in a competitive job market, by structuring the development of the international skills that are highly sought by employers. Reserve your spot for the uOGlobal recognition today here.


We are looking for volunteers to help out with the planting, maintenance, and harvesting of an organic vegetable garden behind CHEO this summer.  

The garden is a community project that is an offshoot of the Nourish to Flourish program, which aims at helping pregnant mothers and neonates with opioid use or on opioid replacement therapy obtain the nutrients they need to help support themselves and their growing babies. 

We were fortunate to have recruited a cohort of pregnant women on opioids to study the effects of these drugs on pregnancy outcomes. Our goal is to educate these women on the importance of proper nutrition during pregnancy and eventually to offer them a basket of locally grown organic vegetables at the end of the summer. 


  • Planting day: Volunteers will meet May 18th (rain date is May 25th) to set up planter boxes and plant seeds in the backyard of CHEO. Leigh Fenton, will guide us through the planting process and help us learn how we need to care for these vegetables differently from a garden with pesticides. 

  • Maintenance: From late May to August, we will ask volunteers to offer up a few minutes of their lunch break to water the plants and make sure there are no pests. We will have a schedule to ensure that this happens every day, but that each volunteer is only required to attend once or twice a month. 

  • Harvesting: We will spend a few days late July and August picking the vegetables we grew and creating baskets to give to the women who participated in this program. 

We are looking for volunteers for all of these tasks and welcome those who wish to partake every part. We will give priority to students working or volunteering at the Roger Guidon Campus/Ring Road Hospital Complex over the summer for convenience. 

If you are interested, please fill out the short form below before 11:59pm Monday, April 29th. Feel free to contact Anika Mukherjee at amukh008@uottawa with any questions regarding volunteering or Leigh Fenton at for more information on the Nourish to Flourish program.
