In all our interactions with students, learners, staff, instructors, care providers and patients, we share the following values:


Every individual is a valued and respected member of our educational community; therefore, we actively promote, support, and value well-being


Exhibiting compassion will foster well-being, empathy, and understanding

Cultural Safety

A respectful learning and work environment supports positive collaboration and communication, addressing power imbalances in the learning and work environment

Diverse Perspectives

Diverse perspectives count in the partnership of all the individuals and communities; therefore, we actively practice anti-racism, anti-oppression, and decolonization principles at all levels of the program

Health Equity

We seek to address health inequities through active innovation in our admissions process, educational practices, and advocacy


We believe that our development as individuals and as an organization is essential; therefore, we learn from mistakes that embody adaptive innovation and quality improvement
