Education Rounds

Program Objective

Best Practice in Education Rounds (BPER): Integrating Stories and Science link the theory and practice of health professions education and faculty development with invited speakers from local, national and international contexts.

Program Description

Best Practice in Education Rounds (BPER) are co-hosted by the Centre for Faculty Development, The Wilson Centre and the Centre for Advancing Collaborative Healthcare & Education (CACHE). We leverage the expertise that exists between our Centres to facilitate a more impactful offering.

BPER aims to reach a diverse audience, including patient/client and family partners and a range of professional/health worker backgrounds.
