International Learner Program

Launched in 2009, the International Learner Program (ILP), certified as a Leading Practice by Accreditation Canada offers international healthcare professionals the opportunity to take part in knowledge acquisition through observation or practice experiences, including hands-on training related to specific areas of practice. The ILP is unique amongst educational programs in North America, as it provides its practice stream participants with the chance to engage in supervised patient care. Through this program, international learners develop their own learning objectives, are mentored by expert staff, and receive one-on-one knowledge translation coaching, in addition to formative and summative evaluations, and a nine- to twelve-month follow-up assessment.

To apply to or learn more about the ILP, please review the following information.
