Master of Science Graduate Program
The Master of Science Program is open to residents in Surgery at the University of Manitoba currently registered in a Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) specialty training program through the Max Rady College of Medicine - Rady Faculty of Health Sciences.  The RCPSC program is a postgraduate clinical specialty certification program and residents earn the M.Sc. as an additional degree to their certification. Through the Thesis Stream, the Surgery program provides surgical residents a year free of clinical* duties to complete the required course hours.
