Students are an important resource and an integral part of the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre (PQCHC) team. The skill, knowledge, assistance, support and enthusiasm of students allows PQCHC to offer a variety of programs and services.
Students: University, College, Secondary (High School) School Co-Op Placements
Student placements or field placements are an essential part of student training. These placements are designed to connect students with community agencies, other students and the community members who they serve.
Students will have opportunities to:
Connect with multi-disciplinary professional staff, volunteers and community members
Understand the PQCHC organizational structure and its policies and procedures
Be introduced to a spectrum of community activities and programs
Integrate classroom learning and theory with actual practice situations in the community
Expand awareness, knowledge and understanding of diversity
Assess and evaluate their own skills, abilities and performance in the field
Who Can Apply
Students can apply for placement opportunities from any accredited educational institution, college, university and/or secondary school program, which requires students to complete an unpaid placement as part of their academic credits.
Educational programs (e.g. Master of Health Administration) requiring a paid internship will be approved by the Chief Executive Officer.
