The CREATE I3T Program

The I3T program is open to everyone.  No application is required.  Follow the web site; attend the events---it is that easy.

The program builds upon a vibrant, inter-faculty, established research training and education effort in Southern Alberta. It significantly expands upon the advanced scientific and engineering training already being received by our research trainees. Medical Imaging, the research target for this training program, is an academically rich area that combines elements of advanced computer science, engineering, and physics with biology, psychology, neurosciences, and medical sciences. The CREATE I3T Program will provide enhancements to both the quality of the training and the number of trainees in this area of research endeavor.

The CREATE I3T Program is intended to prepare trainees to be future academic and commercial leaders, by providing them with cutting-edge technical skills and knowledge in Medical Imaging. In addition, the program will provide essential, yet complimentary; scientific, technical, professional and entrepreneurial skills needed for our trainees to advance in their careers and reach their full potential.
