To obtain a "Certificate of Completion" all GCSRT students must fulfill the program’s academic and attendance requirements:

GCSRT Foundation Course

The GCSRT Foundation Course curriculum provides a strong foundation of knowledge and skills across the broad spectrum of clinical science. Students are required to complete all individual homework assignments, attend webinars, and participate in team activities, including team presentations. Students receive a “pass” by participating in all components of the foundation courses.

Concentration and Elective Courses

All GCSRT students must meet the requirements of the concentrations and elective courses in which they are enrolled.


The program requires that students must pass two multiple choice question (MCQ) exams to demonstrate proficiency in learning the presented material: the first (mid-term) will open December 3, 2015 and the second (final exam) will open May 20, 2016.

Submission of homework assignments

The program requires all homework assignments to be submitted on time and awarded a "pass".

Submission of the Capstone Proposal

The program requires the Capstone Proposal to be submitted by the appointed deadline and a "pass" obtained.

Team Assignments

Students are put into teams at the beginning of the year. Each student must actively contribute to each of five (5) team assignments.

Attendance Requirements

Attendance at workshops

Attendance at the workshops is a required feature of this program. If a student cannot attend a workshop, a petition must be submitted to the GCSRT Education Committee for review and approval.

Attendance of webinars and team presentations

The program requires students to attend scheduled live webinars. However, if a student cannot attend the live webinar due to occasional scheduling conflicts, it is possible to review the recording of the webinar. Students are expected to view a minimum of 75% of the live or recorded webinars.
