Learning at Humber River Hospital

Spring 2019

On Thursday May 2nd, students completing a co-op placement at Humber River Hospital participated in their second Reach Ahead Day of Learning.
Students spent a part of their day working with the Humber River Hospital (HRH) on-site financial institution (RBC) staff.  The students participated in RBC’s Future Launch workshop and learned about the importance of becoming prepared for a workforce that is changing drastically.  RBC staff also dialogued with the students about their unique purpose on site at the hospital, RBC’s community involvement and commitment to helping youth prepare for the future of work.

Students spent the remainder of their day with Umwali Sauter, the HRH Equity & Inclusion specialist.  During this portion of the day, students engaged in discussions about well-being, belonging and the health of a community.  Students learned about the health equity challenges affecting the surrounding community and how Umwali is helping to ensure that HRH applies an equity and inclusion lens to decisions made.

Thank you to the staff in the various departments at HRH who engage daily with our students to provide them with rich learning experiences.   Thanks as well to the staff in volunteer services who coordinate the co-op placements and facilitate these additional learning opportunities!
Every semester, Humber River Hospital accepts applications from surrounding boards for student coop placements, and every year, about 50 of our students succeed in obtaining highly competitive coop placements at HRH.  Many of the students are part of Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM)  programs in their schools.  This semester students from:  Madonna, Chaminade, Dante, Father Henry Carr, St. Oscar Romero, Loretto College, Monsignor Percy Johnson, James Cardinal McGuigan and Brebeuf were placed in both outpatient clinics and in-patient units.
Students in grades 9 and 10 interested in learning more about SHSM programs in their schools please visit the guidance office.  Students in grades 11 and 12 interested in completing a co-op placement at Humber River Hospital should see one of the teachers in the Cooperative Education Department in their school and inquire about the application process.
