Health care team in pink scrubs working on patient

Providing care to patients with increasingly complex challenges within an evolving health system requires a new approach to health science education. The Health Sciences Education and Research Commons (HSERC) is committed to equipping the next generation of health professionals with the skills to provide such care. 

HSERC is a shared resource comprising eight faculties with two essential parts. First, HSERC is home to interprofessional curriculum with a focus on supporting the development and evaluation of team-based learning experiences for all health science faculties. Second, HSERC has a suite of simulation learning environments and simulation services (e.g. Standardized Patient Program) to support curriculum development/delivery and education research.
