SEAC group photoThe Sunnybrook Education Advisory Council (SEAC) is a standing committee within the Education portfolio. The council is chaired by the Vice President of Education and consists of an interprofessional team of educators and leaders.

There are key initiatives developed through the four priorities of the Sunnybrook Education Strategic Plan 2017-2020 that deliver on: (1) Patient as Educator; (2) Team-based Learning; (3) Learner Experience and Culture; and (4) Educational Scholarship. The SEAC Coordinator coordinates the implementation of the Sunnybrook Education Strategic Plan to ensure its success.

The council provides a forum to enable the Education Strategy. The council also advises senior leaders who have direct responsibility for Education on the SEAC initiatives supporting Sunnybrook’s Education Strategy. This committee serves the educational needs of students, patients and families and team members in all professions and roles.

Broad representation of these stakeholder groups will be represented through the Priority Leads. This also includes Patient and Family representation.
