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) 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 sessions per year (3-hour sessions).
  • The cost of your parking or TTC transportation will be 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.
