Centre Researcher

A ‘Centre Researcher’ comes from an academic or clinical background within or outside of the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. A Centre Researcher will be actively involved in leading one or more research projects related to the scholarly activities at CERI. Centre Researchers typically hold an advanced degree in education or a relevant research area (e.g., MHPE, M.Ed, PhD).  The Centre Researcher designation will be determined in consultation with their relevant Faculty Dean/Associate/Vice Dean or Department/Division Chair/Chief.

How do I become a Centre Researcher?

Members of the CERI Community become a Centre Researcher through invitation, or by applying after a period of consistent and active involvement with CERI.

You can apply to become an Centre Researcher by contacting CERI: 
Centre Researcher status will be reviewed every 3 years by the CERI Directors in consultation with the relevant Faculty/Departmental leaders.
