Clinical Partners

Clinical placements are coordinated in partnership with health authorities, academic institutions and clinical associates through the Health Sciences Placement Network (HSPnet) system. UBC partners with health authorities across Metro Vancouver and throughout Canada to deliver world-class practice education experiences.

In your final consolidated practicum, you may have the opportunity to seek placements outside Metro Vancouver based on meeting specific criteria. Please speak with your course leader to inquire about potential opportunities.

Here are some examples of the institutions that we partner with:
