VHA Research Fellowship Program

The VHA Research Fellowship Program is run in partnership with VHA Research and the UHN Collaborative Academic Practice Department (CAP). This program was the first of its kind in the world and has a long history of supporting point-of-care providers to engage in successful quality improvement work.


The CAP Program at UHN provides unique opportunities for healthcare professionals at the point-of- care to improve quality of client care by leading a quality improvement project, related to the organization’s strategic priorities, and to engage in ongoing dialogue and learning about leadership and spearheading positive change.


VHA is excited to partner with UHN to bring this exceptional program to our point of care staff to realize similar benefits.
