Educational Programs

Glaxo Wellcome Clinical Education Centre

The Clinical Education Centre is a unique educational facility synonymous with the “caring” part of health care. It complements the traditional opportunities for health sciences students to learn and develop their clinical and communication skills. The product of a university/corporate partnership within the health sciences disciplines, the Centre encompasses inter-professional learning opportunities and state-of-the-art technology.

Patient Simulation Lab

In the Patient Simulation Lab, students learn essential clinical and surgical skills on simulators that closely resemble an actual human body. Under the watchful eye of faculty members, students can hone important techniques, learn to work as a team in an emergency and see the results of their actions – all without any risk to patients.


Office of Interprofessional Education and Practice

The Office of Interprofessional Education and Practice (OIPEP) strives to create common strategies, content and resources for interprofessional teaching, learning, and practice for health sciences students and faculty. Interprofessional Education (IPE) provides medical, nursing and rehabilitation therapy students with opportunities to learn from, with and about other health professionals. IPE facilitates the development of knowledge and skills to enhance team function and support collaborative, patient-centred care.
