The Sunnybrook ALS Program Educator Division was created several years ago to oversee the professional development of our various programs, our medical education courses and to ensure superior quality of our faculty.
We audit our courses, taking note of how the course presentations, both lectures and skill stations, can be improved. We take pride in the fact that 100% of our Faculty are fully certified in their divisions, and constantly updated with new guidelines as approved by our governing bodies. We report directly to the Canadian / Ontario Heart and Stroke Foundations (for ACLS and PALS) and to the American College of Surgeons in Chicago (for ATLS).
Our auditors (members of the Educator Committee) work with our faculty both in group sessions and one-on-one development to generate superb education.
Several years ago we created incentives in the form of Annual Academic Awards. The decisions on Awards are by the Educator Committee and given to the winning recipients at our Annual Director Dinner Meeting each spring.
