Sunnybrook is inventing the future of health-care through education

Established more than 30 years ago, Sunnybrook’s Advanced Life Support Educator program is one of the largest and most active programs of its kind in Canada.

We are proud to have hosted healthcare workers from across Canada, and also from more than 30 countries, including Australia, New Zealand, China, and the Caribbean.

We have been recognized by the Heart & Stroke Foundation as a model for other centres to follow and we take pride in our leadership role.
