Help train our medical students

We are looking for a patient partner to help teach our medical students.

Patient partner needed for the Simulation Centre. You may be able to help if you:

  • Had a surgical procedure at Sunnybrook in the past 3 years where you were given general anesthetic (you were put to sleep) and you recall your pre- and post-operative experience.
  • Can participate in a 3-hour training session (8-11:30am) once per month to help train future medical doctors in the Sunnybrook Canadian Simulation Centre. The Simulation Centre uses an immersive educational approach to train various health care professionals.
  • Can make a commitment of 3 hours per month for 4-6 months.
  • Parking or TTC transportation covered.

You do not need health-care experience to volunteer. You will be asked about your surgery and given training to provide feedback to the students.


For more information or to express interest in participating, please contact Laurie Legere, Manager Engagement and Health Equity: or 437-999-9029
