Students feel part of the team.

"The people made an effort to get to know me as part of the team."

"The departments I worked in were extremely collaborative."

"I had a very good learning environment and great experience."

Students spoke. We listened

Many students told us they'd like to feel more connected to other students here on placements. And, they told us being a health-care profession student can be pretty stressful.
So, we designed and hosted a Student Wellness Fair in 2016 to provide tips on self-care, nutrition, mindfulness and more. Attendees also got to network and connect with other students here at Sunnybrook.

Last year, students told us our registration process was not streamlined. This year, we created an online registration system to students can register for placements and complete required learning all in one place. Feedback about the new online system has been very positive.
