Education mission, vision and values
At Sunnybrook, education is foundational to inventing the future of healthcare. We will:
- Enable interprofessional teams that include patients and their families
- Develop, adopt, and share innovation in education
- Use technology to drive quality and engage our learners
- Collaborate with the University of Toronto and our partners
- Align with our clinical, research and organizational priorities
- Teach and support our educators
- Enhance research in education
At Sunnybrook, EDUCATION Matters! As part of this ongoing commitment, the Sunnybrook Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) was formed in 2010 to provide a forum for leaders across all health professions at Sunnybrook to drive education strategic planning and implementation. SEAC also includes students and patients. If you are interested in helping improve the educational experience at Sunnybrook, please contact Dr. Joshua Tepper, VP, Education at firstname.lastname@example.org.

More about us
Interprofessional Care/Interprofessional Education (IPC/IPE)
Sunnybrook is committed to creating an interprofessional educational experience and delivering Interprofessional Care (IPC).
IPC is the provision of comprehensive health services to patients and their families by health caregivers who work collaboratively to deliver quality care within and across settings. Evidence has shown that IPC can improve safety and raise the level of patient satisfaction with their care. For healthcare providers, research suggests that IPC improves recruitment and retention while improving provider safety.
Providing interprofessional settings during training helps prepare for team-based practice throughout a career. At Sunnybrook, we are committed to providing interprofessional experiences for all of our health professional learners. Each year, we provide IPE learning opportunities in a variety of settings. These range from formal facilitator-led structured interprofessional placements to informal flexible placements. We encourage all students to participate in opportunities to learn about, learn with and learn from each other.
