Strategic Training Initiative in Health Research (STIHR): MR4-55/2017E-PDF

CIHR evaluation report 2008-2013 /

“The Strategic Training Initiative in Health Research (STIHR) was launched by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) in 2001. The purpose of STIHR was to build capacity within Canada's health research community through the training and development of researchers and the fostering and support of their careers. CIHR’s program was developed to introduce novel, innovative, and interdisciplinary methods of training the next generation of health researchers, thereby building health research capacity in Canada; attracting international research talent; and ensuring research excellence. A series of grants were used to establish training programs in specific areas of health research. The evaluation used multiple sources of quantitative and qualitative evidence: analyses of documents and data; end of grant and progress reporting; surveys with principal investigators (PIs) and trainees; key informant interviews with PIs, trainees, STIHR partners and university staff. The evaluation meets the requirements of the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) under the 2009 Policy on Evaluation"--Executive summary, p. 4.
