Accreditation Canada Research Fellowship

Accreditation Canada is a not-for-profit, independent organization that provides national and international health services organizations with quality-focused, comprehensive accreditation services. At this time, Accreditation Canada has two exciting Post-Doctoral Fellowship opportunities available. This is the first opportunity of its kind in Canada and will be of interest to those with a focus in the area of health service research and quality improvement. The one year fellowship would offer the investigator the opportunity to:

  • Access rich data from across the continuum of care that is available to Accreditation Canada from 1200 organizations, nationally and internationally;
  • Access senior-level health care executives, stakeholders and policy-makers to inform their research;
  • Gain exposure and orientation to the Canadian and international accreditation environments;
  • Collaborate with Accreditation Canada’s academic partners who are experts in this area of research; and
  • Publish the research findings in high-impact peer-reviewed journals.

Interested applicants should contact Jonathan Mitchell and Hélène Sabourin directly with any questions and join them on Friday, November 13th, 1:30-2:30 pm Eastern Time by teleconference to learn more about the opportunity:
