Professional and Career Development Opportunities

St. Joseph’s Health Centre embraces a culture of learning and ongoing professional development. We do this by supporting our staff in developing their unique areas of professional expertise and enabling them to reach their full potential. As a community teaching hospital, education is a critical part of who we are and what we do.

We offer a variety of financial assistance opportunities for continued education and professional development, including:

  • Education Assistance Grant
  • Centralized Education Funds
  • Interest-Free Tuition Loan

Here’s What Our People Have to Say about Professional Development Opportunities at St. Joseph’s Health Centre

“The funding from the Centralized Education Funds provided me the opportunity to attend a major infectious disease conference and learn from experts in the field. I was also able to share my own expertise and present research we performed at SJHC. This helped provide useful data to other health care providers and showcased the great work we do at St. Joe’s.”
– Bradley Langford, Lead Pharmacist, Antimicrobial Stewardship Program

“The conference was great! I learned a lot about how other hospitals across Canada are developing their business portfolios and generating a fair size of revenue. The same time my counterparts learned from me as well.  As a result, I got representatives from two Ontario hospitals who want to have a tour at St. Joe’s and learn about parking and patients entertainment systems.”
– Igor Kim, Manager, Commercial Operations

“It gives me a sense of security to learn that St .Joe’s supports my efforts to access training that will develop my intervention techniques and improve care of my patients with the Urban Family Health Team.”
– Kate Lawton, Social Worker, Urban Family Health Team – Family Medicine

“It feels fantastic to have the financial support of St. Joe’s. This support gives me confidence in pursuing advanced clinical skills.”
– Jane Bowman, Behaviour Change Specialist, Urban Family Health Team – Family Medicine

“It was truly an honour to have been selected to present to an international audience at the annual conference of the Association  for Medical Education in Europe held  in Glasgow, Scotland. Without the generous funding provided through the department of corporate education and learning I would not have been able to attend and present a short communication entitled ” Integrating educational theory into health professional curricula through an educational conceptual framework “.  The conference provided an opportunity for me to network with others with similar interests from numerous healthcare professions from around the world, to hear and discuss the views of acknowledged experts, and to take part in workshops and courses.”
– Marie Eason Klatt, Advanced Practice Clinician – Hand Therapy

“The world around us is constantly changing. The educational funds at St. Joe’s support the staff to increase knowledge, competence and performance levels on an ongoing basis.”
– Ralph Aprile, Project Consultant – Redevelopment

I am appreciative of the educational fund at the health centre as it provides ongoing opportunities for all of us as staff to learn and grow. For St. Joe’s to invest in my personal development, makes me feel valued as an employee.”
– Jutta Schaaf, Coordinator – Patient, Family Experience & Community Engagement
