Centre for Aging SMART (Solutions for Mobility, Activity, Rehabilitation and Technology) at Vancouver Coastal Health hosts an established Trainee Committee that is for trainees, by trainees. They actively facilitate learning and social opportunities with fellow trainees who represent over 15 academic disciplines. The culture of collaboration and integration supports learning from one another and the world-class faculty based at the Centre.

Trainee Committee Goals

  • Facilitate educational / professional development events relevant to (and where possible, determined by) ALL trainees at the Centre, including but not limited to the annual trainee day
  • Facilitate interaction between trainees, both professionally and socially
  • Serve as ‘knowledge bank’ for new and current trainees
  • Act as liaison between staff, faculty, and trainees

Our Members

The trainee committee is comprised of elected members (Centre for Aging SMART at VCH affiliated trainees, Executive Committee), Faculty Liaisons, an Operations Liaison, and other Centre Trainees or Staff that volunteer to serve the trainee community.

Our trainee committee can’t exist without committed trainees! Are you a Centre for Aging SMART at VCH trainee interested in adding to the trainee experience? Never hesitate to get involved by emailing us.

Undergraduate or graduate students who seek an opportunity to train with Centre faculty are encouraged to link their interests with those of specific faculty members and contact the faculty member directly through their home academic departments.
