Considering an interdisciplinary PhD?

I supervise PhD students and postdoctoral researchers who are interested in qualitative methods, interdisciplinary research, and rehabilitation.  My trainees' disciplinary backgrounds are quite diverse, but most are interested in innovative methodologies and/or chronic illnesses, such as cancer.  More broadly, the School of Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Ottawa offers a unique environment in which doctoral students pursue a range of topics related to disability, chronic illness, rehabilitation, function, and quality of life. 

Applicants to the doctoral program do not require a clinical background in rehabilitation sciences and may come from other disciplines in the social sciences and humanities.  Four courses are associated with the PhD program.  I currently teach Team Research and Interdisciplinary Methodology.  Other courses focus on models of rehabilitation and knowledge translation.

If you think you might be interested in an interdisciplinary doctoral program, please email me and visit the School of Rehabilitation Sciences website.
