About Education at Sunnybrook

Learners come from all over the world to study with our renowned faculty and become important members of our interprofessional, person-centered teams.

All students are asked to complete a survey at the end of their placement, be it a short two-week visit or a year-long rotation. Their feedback helps us grow.

“Sunnybrook is a great place for students! And also, importantly, for patients.”

  • 91% of students said their experience at Sunnybrook allowed them to meet their learning objectives.
  • 89% would recommend their placement at Sunnybrook to a classmate or friend.
  • 91% said their placement met their educational and professional expectations.

Students feel part of the team.

“There are very friendly and welcoming staff who make you feel like you are part of the team.”

“Everyone was willing to teach and answer the questions I had.”

Students spoke. We listened

Many students told us that even though the shuttle bus services are helpful, it’s hard to keep track of the schedule and traffic hold- ups routinely affect bus arrival and departure times. A lot of time is spent waiting for the bus.

“We need a way of tracking when the shuttle is actually coming,” said one student. On June 15, 2017, Sunnybrook launched a Sunnybrook Shuttle Bus Services App that allows riders to track the bus in real-time through GPS. This means less time standing at the bus stop for our students. Take that, Toronto traffic.

Praise for our teachers, preceptors and instructors

92% of students agreed their supervisor modelled professional values in their behaviour and interactions with staff, patients and students.

91% of students said they’d recommend their supervisor, preceptor, for future student placements.

“The learning environment was great. Team members and preceptors were very approachable, knowledgeable and easy to work with.”

“Excellent interprofessional care on the units — with nursing, physiotherapy, pharmacy and more all working together.”
