Directors Message

Welcome to our website. You're here because, like us, you care about making health education better.

In our vision of the future are teams of care providers who put the patient at the centre of care, and who understand and respect each other's roles and expertise.

None of this will be accomplished alone. That's why we partner with other post-secondary institutions, government, the private sector and the community.

We are excited to provide an environment for interprofessional healthteam education and interdisciplinary research right in the heart of the University of Alberta campus. Behind our doors, you will find simulation and clinical exam spaces, a Standardized Patient Program and VIPER - our Virtual Interprofessional Education Resource offering single-window access to a host of resources both created and curated by the HSERC team.

The Health Sciences Education and Research Commons' spaces are available to external groups for activities from high-stakes exams to film and video production.

We hope you'll plan a visit to meet us in person in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
