NSERC CREATE Training Program

in Bone and Joint Health Technologies

The HMRC-CREATE assessment and evaluation framework has four phases. Each phase should not be viewed as a distinct, stand-alone event but as a part of an on-going process. The feedback and outcomes from each phase inform the next (indicated in arrows). The assessment and evaluation framework is learner-centered and features a portfolio-based approach. Alongside portfolios, other tools and methods will be employed to assess learning and determine the effectiveness of the program, including:

  • focus groups
  • online questionnaires
  • one-on-one interviews with various stakeholders

Upon admission to the program, all trainees will be also invited to participate in a research and evaluation project related to the program, undertaken by the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL). We seek permission from each trainee using an informed consent form, allowing us to use data gathered through the program for learning and research purposes. Email us to learn more about the study's process and results. The data collection process has been reviewed and approved by the university's Ethics Board (GREB) ensuring that ethics standards for research involving human participants are maintained.

Certification and Closure

At the end of the program, trainees and interns also complete an exit survey and an exit-competency assessment.
