The Dr. Daniel C. Andreae President’s Awards

Through the generosity of Dr. Daniel C. Andreae, two awards will be granted to support one student in Michener’s School of Applied Health Science programs and one UHN research trainee in their academic pursuits. The value of each award is $1500 each.  

As future health care leaders, it is important that students anticipate and shape the future of the professions through ethical practice, patient-centred care, innovation and research.  “This can involve how we use technology, simulation, artificial intelligence, robotics, genetics or big data to better serve patients and their families,” says Dr. Andreae. 

  1. Michener Advanced Diploma Program Students ($1500.00)

One Dr. Daniel C. Andreae President Award will be awarded to a current Michener student who meets the following criteria:

    • Enrolled in a full-time Michener advanced diploma program in good academic standing with a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average of 75%.

Note: Applicants will be evaluated on their GPA, research experience, health care experience (including clinical placements), and volunteer experience, as well as the quality of their commentary paper (both content and style). 

Submission of the following:

    • Unofficial transcript;
    • A Curriculum Vitae
    • A one-page commentary paper addressing the broad issue of either the future of work in Canada OR the future of the healthcare professions (500 words maximum)

  1. UHN Research Trainee ($1500.00) 

One Dr. Daniel C. Andreae President Award will be awarded to a current UHN Research Trainee in good standing in an affiliated Graduate Program who meets the following criteria:  

    • Enrolled in a graduate program in good academic standing (grades will be used as a threshold test only, as inter-school comparison is not possible) 

Note: Applicants will be evaluated on their GPA, research experience, health care experience (including clinical placements), and volunteer experience, as well as the quality of their commentary paper (both content and style). 

Submission of the following:

    • Unofficial transcript;
    • A Curriculum Vitae
    • A one-page commentary paper addressing the broad issue of either the future of work in Canada OR the future of the healthcare professions (500 words maximum)
