McMaster University's Master of Clinical Health Sciences, Occupational Therapy, MCHS (OT), and Master of Clinical Health Sciences, Physiotherapy, MCHS (PT), Programs offer a Northern Studies Stream (NSS) option in collaboration with Lakehead University.

- increase students' awareness and knowledge of the determinants of health unique to northern and rural communities;
- increase students' awareness of aboriginal health issues, culture and health practices relevant to the First Nations people living in northern and rural Ontario;
- provide students with the skill required for dealing with professional issues while practicing and living in northern and rural communities.
