IGH Trainee Network

IGH oversees a Canadian network that builds awareness and capacity in sex- and gender-based analysis among trainees conducting health research in Canada. The network connects health research trainees from across Canada to exchange ideas and resources about the integration of sex and gender in health research. The Trainee Network currently has chapters at 22 institutions, each including at least one Trainee Leader and one Senior Mentor.

Membership benefits include:

  • Networking and mentorship with senior researchers across health disciplines
  • Networking with other trainees with an interest in sex and gender in health research
  • Learning opportunities such as webinars, in-person meet-ups and online resources
  • The opportunity to have your research promoted by IGH
  • A direct connection to IGH and CIHR for the latest funding opportunities and research news
