University of Ottawa - Université d'Ottawa
Since 1848, the University of Ottawa (UO) has been characterized by its unique history, its commitment to bilingualism, its location both in the heart of the national capital and at the juncture of French and English Canada, its special commitment to the promotion of French culture in Ontario and to multiculturalism. UO places its students at the core of its educational mission to expand their knowledge, enrich their culture, boost their creativity, enhance their ability to question and analyse to become responsible citizens and leaders of society. UO conducts first-class research, most notably in each of its strategic areas of development. It builds strong partnerships to fulfill its social responsibilities, and it values its community through expression.
UO aspires to be, among universities, the essential reference on what Canada represents: a university that is an integral part of its community, open to the world, and distinguished by its search for excellence in research, its high-quality learning environment, its passion for knowledge and innovation, its leadership on language issues, and its openness to diversity. Every member of UO’s institution takes part in its educational mission.
Links to the health workforce crisis
UO has many goals. Its first direction is to strengthen its competitive edge, and it has set the path as follows:
- Play a leadership role in promoting the official languages;
- Be an integral part of Canada’s capital; and
- Move onto the international stage.
It is, also, important to create knowledge, to invest and to discover in order to offer students an unparalleled university experience. The Telfer School of Management offers a graduate program leading to the degree of Master of Science in Health Systems. This research-based program is designed to train researchers and academic leaders in the expanding field of health systems. These systems are studied using the scientific problem solving methods of management science and systems science. Students follow a process of scientific discovery.
UO joined the Alliance in 2007 as an implementing Partner.
