The Enhance Lab will be accepting applications for both MSc and PhD students for the Fall 2019. It is strongly encouraged that prospective students email Dr. McMorris prior to the application deadline to set up a meeting to discuss research and clinical interests.
Dr. Carly McMorris
A strong research background, along with an interest in continuing to PhD will be seen as strengths. Prospective students are also encouraged to apply to a Tri-Council scholarship (e.g., CIHR, SSHRC or NSERC) or other provincial awards if appropriate (e.g., QEII). A majority of the current Enhance graduate students are currently funded by national, provincial or local awards.
