Ph.D in Rural and Northern Health
The minimum requirements that doctoral students must successfully complete are:
All students, in consultation with their Supervisor and Supervisory Committee, shall develop their program of study by evaluating their academic strengths and weaknesses using the stated competencies of the program. Based upon this plan and depending upon their education and professional background, some students may require additional coursework. It is expected that all full‐time students will have completed all of their required coursework by the end of their first year of doctoral studies and all part‐time students will complete required course work by the end of their second year of studies. Please note that all students will not be allowed to proceed to their comprehensive examination without having successfully completed all of the required coursework.
Students must also obtain a minimum grade of 70% in each graduate course, including elective coursework, in order to pass the course. Students who receive less than 70% in a required course must repeat the course.
