Director, MSc eHealth Interdisciplinary Graduate Program

Posted October 31, 2013

McMaster’s eHealth graduate program provides high quality training in the broad interdisciplinary area of health informatics. It emphasizes industry-relevant academic research and development.  The program is the result of a partnership between the Faculties of Health Sciences, Engineering and Business.  We are currently seeking a Director of the MSc eHealth interdisciplinary graduate program. The successful candidate will be a current faculty member at McMaster University, engaged in the eHealth program, with an appointment in one of the three participating Faculties (Health Sciences, Engineering, or Business).

The Director of the Program will act as a senior academic leader with responsibility for the effective operation of the Program. Responsibilities of the Director include assuming an active role in promoting the recruitment, education, and welfare of the Program’s students, enhancing the quality of graduate education, managing program finances and resources, supervising Program staff, and providing a channel of communication among graduate students, graduate faculty, the Deans and the Associate Deans of Graduate Studies for the Faculties (Business, Engineering, and Health Sciences), and Department or Area Chairs from the Departments or Areas participating in the program.

The Director works closely with two Program Coordinators, selected from faculty participating in the program and representing the three participating Faculties. This group of three (the Director who represents his or her Faculty and the two Program Coordinators who each represent his or her Faculty—one person from each of the three Faculties) enables daily functioning of the program.

The Director of the eHealth (MSc) Program will work, in collaboration with the eHealth Program Coordinators, to complete the following tasks and objectives.

Administration:

  • Maintain oversight of student recruitment, student enrolment, and curriculum and policy changes, for the maintenance and development of excellence within the Program, and in consultation with and assistance of the various committees that support the Program. The Director, or delegate, is responsible for provision of leadership in curriculum and policy review, program committee structure and membership, and specific activities such as research days, open houses, or career information sessions at McMaster and other institutions.
  • Appoint and enable ad hoc committees as needed to advance program initiatives.
  • Maintain oversight of the allocation of funding to support students (including TAs, stipends and scholarship resources from the School of Graduate Studies or other sources) in consultation with the Associate Deans of Graduate Studies, and others, particularly participating department and area chairs, as appropriate.
  • Preparation of information as may be required by the Associate Deans of Graduate Studies and
    the Associate Vice-President (AVP) and Dean of Graduate Studies related to recruitment, scholarship use, quality improvement, and periodic appraisals of the Program.
  • Provide regular program updates to the Deans and Associate Deans of Graduate Studies, and others, particularly participating department and area chairs, as appropriate, regarding contributions of faculty as supervisors and instructors in the program.
  • Assume other duties assigned by the Deans and Associate Deans of Graduate Studies, such as assisting with student or supervisor issues and the student appeal process.
  • Serve as executive secretary of the MSc eHealth Business Advisory Council.

Education:

  • Manage the development, implementation and ongoing refinement of curriculum, including provision of reports and proposals for policy and curriculum changes for submission to Graduate Policy and Curriculum Committees (GPCCs or GCPCs) and other approval bodies, as appropriate. Provide ongoing academic leadership for the program, including the development of innovative approaches to graduate education, and oversight of the development and implementation of appropriate evaluation methods for students, faculty, and courses in the Program.

Research:

  • Facilitation of educational research, development and evaluation in the program and in relation to other programs, as appropriate. The Director will have the primary responsibility for the oversight of graduate student progress within the eHealth program in conjunction with the Program Coordinators and Program committees.

Selection and Terms of Office:

  • The Director will be selected by an ad‐hoc committee chaired by the Associate Deans of Graduate Studies for the participating Faculties, and will include Program faculty and students. The Director’s appointment is subject to formal approval of Senate. The term of appointment will be for a period of five years, with renewal subject to a favourable review.

Applications should include a brief statement of qualifications for the position and curriculum vitae.  All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence and should be submitted to the Faculty of Health Sciences Graduate Programs Office (adeanhsc@mcmaster.ca) by December 6, 2013
