About Student Placement
Student placement offers students hands-on experience in a clinical or community setting to learn the necessary skills, attitudes and knowledge to practice effectively in their field. They emphasize the importance of learning by doing. Placements can also open many opportunities to network and make important contacts within the industry.
The student’s educational experience may involve access to patient information or direct patient/client/resident care under the direction and supervision of practicing health professionals authorized by the health authority or educational institution.
Student Placement at Louis Brier
As a part of our efforts to be recognized as a centre of excellence and leaders in eldercare, Louis Brier Home and Hospital has been committed to fostering its relationships in the academic community. In 2019, we established solid relationships with UBC School of Nursing and School of Medicine and since then have collaborated with a range of other universities and colleges across British Columbia to give students an opportunity to practice and build their clinical, research and educational skills in an environment that provides the highest quality of care. At Louis Brier, we also see the student placement program as a great recruitment opportunity; we see our students are potential future employees.
