Through its local and globally focused educational efforts, Baycrest is striving to be the world’s pre-eminent distributor of knowledge regarding best and leading-edge practices in senior care and aging solutions.
Fully affiliated with the University of Toronto (U of T), Baycrest has an extensive clinical training program in geriatric care. Annually, nearly 1400 students, trainees and other practitioners from over 50 universities and colleges have a unique opportunity to experience the delivery of high quality care alongside leading experts on one of the world’s most comprehensive campuses of care focused on aging and care of older adults.
Each year we provide students with practical on-site training in almost every healthcare discipline. More than 230 of our staff hold academic appointments at the University of Toronto and/or other partner universities, colleges and institutes in Faculties of Medicine, Nursing, Social Work and Rehabilitation Sciences, among others.
Baycrest hosts a number of provincial, national and international educational programs each year and we are an emerging hub for global tele-education in aging, collaborating with institutions around the world. We also provide educational programs for staff, clients, families, and caregivers as well as the general public.
