Patients In Education

VISION

Health professional education that fully integrates patient and community expertise and lived experience to maximise health and social outcomes.

MISSION

We work in partnership to include diverse, autonomous and authentic voices of patients in the education of health and social care professionals so that the care delivered is genuinely patient-centred.

We advocate for patients as active collaborators, teachers, assessors, curriculum developers and educational decision makers.

ABOUT US

Patients in Education is a partnership between the Patient & Community Partnership for Education in the Office of the Vice-Provost Health at the University of British Columbia and the community.
