Student Placements

We provide the opportunity for students to gain experience with the Model of Health and Wellbeing. As a Community Health Centre, our goal is to offer the highest quality, people and community centred primary health care. We strive for health equity and social justice. We work to foster community vitality and belonging.  

Students are encouraged to reflect on the attributes of the model, including: 

  • Population Needs-Based Planning

  • A Community Development Approach

  • A Strong Focus on the Determinants of Health

  • Interprofessional, Integrated and Coordinated

  • Anti-oppression and Culturally Safe Practices

  • Accessibility

  • Community Centredness and Community Governance

  • Accountability and Efficiency


We receive a high volume of requests and are not able to respond to each application. 

Please note that we are not able to accept students with our Mental Health and Counselling programs at this time.
