Welcome to Convergence2020: The Michener Institute of Education at UHN Inaugural Education Conference. The convergence of care, research and education allows us to create new knowledge and skills that benefit our patients, families, clinicians and learners. On Wednesday, February 19, 2020 Convergence2020 will highlight the amazing work of our education portfolios across UHN through a dynamic and interactive collection of workshops, sessions, exhibition and debates.
Our theme this year is Building Bridges: Teaching and Learning for a Healthier World. The success of TeamUHN is due to the dedication of our staff, physicians, researchers, patients, educators, learners and volunteers. We work together to build connections between education and care across our many campuses and programs. As a global leader in health professions education, it is time to celebrate TeamUHN’s achievements in teaching and learning.
Through this diverse range of experiences, you should expect to:
- Gain a better understanding of education opportunities offered at UHN
- Explore best practices, new principles and new technology in healthcare education
- Acquire practical skills for enhancing teaching and learning excellence
- Articulate lifelong learning needs to meet demands of future health care systems
