Interprofessional Health Education Hub

UBC Health supports health programs to advance interprofessional and collaborative practice by hosting the Interprofessional Health Education Hub on Canvas (previously known as Collaborative Health Education Enrichment Activities). It is a platform for health disciplines to share information about elective interprofessional and collaborative health activities available to students and facilitate registration.

These activities help build capacity for learning that prepares students for interprofessional practice. They offer students the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills to work interprofessionally as well as the opportunity to learn about patient and community perspectives.

Access to the site is through a self-enrollment button on the site’s page and is accessible to anyone with a UBC Campus-Wide Login (CWL).
