Orientation to the Canadian Health Care System


Orientation to the Canadian Health Care System, Culture and Context is a course offered by the University of Toronto and designed for internationally educated health professionals (IEHPs) who are in the process of becoming licensed in Canada.

It is offered three times per year.

This course will provide learners with a deepened understanding of the Canadian health care system, what Canadian patients expect from their health care providers, and how to communicate with patients and caregivers. Participants will have an opportunity to interact with other internationally educated health care professionals in a supportive learning environment.

For more course information, please visit the website of the University of Toronto at www.iehpcanada.utoronto.ca.

A Yukon-specific addition to this course is available at the Multicultural Centre of the Yukon. If you are interested in taking it please contact the centre directly.
