Dr. Anne Niec and Dr. May Cohen


The Gender & Health Education Initiative was established by the Faculty of Health Sciences to support the development of health science education resources that examine the impact of gender on health and healthcare delivery.

As a multi-faceted initiative we offer several opportunities for students and faculty to get involved, including

  • A biennual competition that offers research grants to those developing gender and health education
  • The Climb, a resource for female faculty and students to develop professionally in medical academia


2020-21 Call for Proposals now OPEN!


Applications are invited from faculty, staff and students in the Faculty of Health Sciences for proposals to develop and/or implement educational initiatives. Staff and student proposals require a faculty supervisor.


Collaborative projects involving faculty and students and interdisciplinary projects crossing program and discipline boundaries are encouraged.
