Research at the Faculty of Health Sciences
Research is a priority of the Faculty of Health Sciences. Our researchers see their research largely funded by the granting councils (SSHRC, NSERC, CIHR) and by a growing number of other external agencies. 74% of our researchers have indeed received grants or research contracts from outside of the University.
Research at the Faculty of Health Sciences involves many important aspects of health, including women's health, health in the elderly, health needs of Francophones in a minority context, Aboriginal health, physical activity and health, multiple interventions in population health, palliative care, rehabilitation and functional autonomy, health and technology, and evidence-based practice.
Faculty of Health Sciences researchers are affiliated with a number of university-linked research units such as the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute, the Élizabeth Bruyère Research Institute, the Community Health Research Unit, the Institute of Rehabilitation Research and Development, the Institute of Population Health, and the Ottawa Health Research Institute.
