Students and Trainees

Through our academic partnerships, the Bruyère Research Institute offers rewarding training opportunities for postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, summer students, and undergraduate students. The Research Institute is committed to offering students a rich and vibrant learning environment where they can gain valuable experience working on innovative research projects, advance their academic careers, and attend or participate in a range of educational events such as our learning series, research webinars, annual research day, and more.

We encourage all students interested in joining our team to directly contact investigators in their research area of interest. Identifying an investigator is considered a pre-requisite to obtaining a placement and is a great first opportunity for students to find a research area that matches their interests and academic goals. Investigators at the Research Institute predominately focus on research in aging in place and long-term care, rehabilitation, palliative care, primary care, medically complex care, and health equity. You can learn more about our investigators and their research, through our investigator directory.
