Science. Technology. Health Care. Welcome to the Ward of the 21st Century.


The W21C Initiative is led in partnership by UCalgary and Alberta Health Services. Both organizations are committed to achieving excellence in health care through innovations to clinical care, research, and education. Participation in the W21C builds on the longstanding tradition of collaboration between organizations working towards this goal.

Summer Studentships

Every summer, W21C offers a variety of research internships from April to August.

Due to overwhelming interest, we are unable to accept any further applications for 2017 Summer Studentship positions funded by W21C.

If students have scholarship or award funding and are interested in pursuing an internship position for 2017, please e-mail w21cedu@ucalgary.ca.
