Three graduate students have won $15,000 fellowships funded by Mitacs and Cloud DX.
The students are: Carley Ouellette, Marissa Bird (declined in order to accept CIHR fellowship), and Kelsea Levesque.
Mitacs is a nonprofit national organization that operates research and training programs in fields related to industrial and social innovation. The Mitacs Accelerate Program is prestigious, high profile, and competitive, allowing trainees to be interns with leading Canadian Industry partners under the supervision of an academic supervisor and a joint industry lead. Cloud DX is award-winning digital health company.
The three students are under the academic supervision of Dr. Michael McGillion of the School of Nursing. Sara Ross Howe from Cloud DX is the industry supervisor.
The students applied for this fellowship under the auspices of a national study called ‘post-discharge after surgery using virtual care with remote automated monitoring’ (also known as the PVC-RAM trial) which is led by Drs. McGillion and PJ Devereaux. (See link below for further information about the study.)
