Research Courses and Training Programs
Research conducted at Hamilton Health Sciences is done in affiliation with our academic partner McMaster University. McMaster offers courses and training programs to assist with advancing research careers by developing skillsets for both investigators and research personnel.
MacART, the McMaster Autism Research Team will host its second annual Autism Research Stakeholder Symposium in the fall of 2017. While last year’s theme focused on early intervention, this year’s symposium will be about autism training and trainees. Speakers and attendees will discuss innovations in training and education for those who live and/or work with autism – researchers, clinicians, self-advocates, teachers, employers – to address both the actual process of training as well as filling gaps in knowledge about ASD. This conference is not only geared toward trainees, it is also being planned by trainees (including graduate students, medical students, and post-doctoral fellows). This year’s theme is addressing one of the four pillars at the core of MacART – education – while supporting the group’s vision of advancing autism care through meaningful research.
The date and details will be announced in the coming weeks. For more information, please visit www.macautism.ca
