Learner Development

The Office of Learner Development (OLD) provides a range of service and resource options to support student & trainee performance, wellbeing and mental health across the UME and GME years.

GOALS & WHAT WE DO

It is our goal to assist students in identifying ways of adapting learning approaches to meet the unique challenges of medical education, and in developing skills for lifelong learning, success and satisfaction in medicine.

OLD seeks to foster skills for enhanced effectiveness & efficiency in all areas of academic performance; it also acknowledges the importance of supporting the contexts within which student/trainee learning occurs. In this regard, OLD works closely with student groups and other offices within Medical Education to promote wellbeing, mental health, effective and safe learning environments, work-life balance, and professionalism, all of which contribute to mitigating known demands, transitions, and life events impacting student/trainee experiences.
