About Us

The Health Sciences Education and Research Commons, part of the Health Sciences Council, is a collaboration between multiple faculties; it is both an academic and a physical space where interprofessional education curriculum is researched, developed, evaluated and delivered. Our suite of specialized simulation learning environments, complete with in-house simulation services, supports a range of interprofessional team-based learning activities and interdisciplinary research. We also house a secure clinical exam space used for a variety of practical exams. All HSERC activities have access to the Standardized Patient Program.

The Health Sciences Education and Research Commons is equipping health professionals with the skills to provide safe, high quality care and to be leaders in an evolving health system.
