Collaborative Learning

Collaborative Learning at Unity Health

Collaborative Learning (CL), also known as Interprofessional Education (IPE), provides learners with experiences to learn about, from and with one another. Unity Health offers learners, from across our sites, a variety of scheduled accredited interprofessional (IP) opportunities including our CL student series, structured placements (longitudinal weekly curriculum) and peer mentorship.  Through partnership with the University of Toronto (UofT), Centre for Advancing Collaborative Healthcare & Education (CACHE), participating UofT students qualify for IP credit.

Current curriculum is offered via Zoom, making the activities accessible to learners on-site and working remotely.  Students can register for Collaborative Learning activities using this link: 


Collaborative Learning curriculum is scaffolded by the Interprofessional Collaboration (IPC) Competency Framework.

What our learners say

“This [IPE activity] will enable me to communicate with my future patients in a better way; a more empathetic way.”
“I’ve learned to include the patient as part of the interprofessional team and have actively tried my best to share the patient’s voice and concerns with the care team.”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience! The facilitators created a safe space for us and I will surely remember what I learned from these four weeks and carry it into professional practice.”
