Health sciences students at HSERC

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.

  2. INT D 410 and beyond: students and HSERC staff co-present on the topic of Interprofessional Education

    November 26 2014

    Interprofessional Health Team Development (INT D 410), a course created in collaboration between the Health Science Education and Research Commons (HSERC) and the health science faculties, offers students the opportunity to develop the collaborative practice skills that will prepare them to meet the challenges of their future work environments. Inspired into action two students, Meghan Chow and Michael Wong, approached HSERC with an idea for a new course stream.
