Master's Thesis
All MAHSR students must successfully complete a Master's thesis which describes the framework and outcomes of an applied research project in an approved area of health services research. The thesis research topic and an initial proposal for the investigation are normally developed in conjunction with the program's advanced research courses, and in consultation with an ARTC faculty supervisor.  All research proposals must receive ethical approval from the appropriate review committee at the student's home university before the research is carried out.

The thesis may be written in a traditional thesis style using the American Psychological Association (APA) style, or may take the form of a publishable research manuscript.  In either case, the thesis will conform to the Graduate Studies standards and regulations at the student's home university.
