The Bridge Program is a scholarship-funding and research training program linking the University of British Columbia's faculties of medicine, engineering and interdisciplinary studies.

Our mission is to develop creative evidence-based prevention measures for public, environmental and occupational health problems.

What is the Bridge Program?

The Bridge Program is a multidisciplinary graduate fellowship program whose goal is to develop creative evidence-based strategies to solve public, environmental and occupational health problems.The focus is on prevention of disease and injury (rather than medical care), using approaches that link the public health, engineering and policy realms.The Program provides funding to graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, visiting scholars and professionals, and brings them together with faculty mentors in an interactive environment.

Our sponsor, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, will no longer be funding our program effective April 1, 2015.  Our program will therefore be winding down as a result of which we shall not be accepting students in the future.
