The Manitoba Training Program for Health Services Research is an applied training program for students engaged in health services research. Students must be accepted and enrolled in a thesis-based Masters or PhD graduate program at the University of Manitoba. Preference will be given to students who are in the first or second year of their graduate program.
Students may receive support from the Manitoba Training Program (MTP) for a total period of 1 year (September to August). MTP students receive $17,850 per year for Master’s students and $22,500 for PhD students, paid on university payroll in bi-weekly installments. Benefits are not provided and priority will be given to students who have not received MTP funds previously.
MTP students receiving other awards will have their MTP stipends adjusted accordingly, and will be given an incentive top-up. For students receiving additional funding from other awards, the MTP stipend will be adjusted to offer an incentive top-up. Please refer to the Student Guidelines for more information.
MTP students must complete the following training activities, in addition to any requirements of their respective graduate programs. Please note that many students are able to apply MTP courses towards their graduate programs of study, upon approval of their advisory committees:
