Co-op students placed at St. Mike’s Hospital through Volunteer Services participate in a semester long experiential learning program earning high school credits. The co-op programs helps students explore health-care careers, develop workplace skills and gain understanding of the science behind patient care.
Students are placed in a number of different hospital units including:  cardiology, nephrology, day surgery, the vivarium, medical imaging and the gift shop, to name but a few. The students are supported in their learning by their direct supervisor, the volunteer co-op program coordinator, Sandy Gobin, and of course, their co-op teacher.
Co-op students at St. Michael’s Hospital not only have work assigned by their co-op teacher, but they also follow a unique curriculum designed by St. Mike’s which further enriches their workplace experience.
As well as their regular daily duties, co-op students participate in hospital tours including trips to the Vivarium, Core Lab, Morgue, Simulation Lab and Medical Imaging.  These tours as well as job-shadowing assignments and lunch-and learn sessions provide students with additional opportunities to learn about the world of Health Sciences.
Congratulations to our students from St. Joseph’s College, Madonna Secondary, Bishop Allen, Jean Vanier and St. Joseph/Michael Power who have had an amazing and enriching learning experience at St. Michael’s Hospital.
