About our Curriculum Sessions

Curriculum sessions aim to provide proactive skill building strategies to assist learners in their various stages of training by:  

  • Encouraging self-reflection, resilience, problem-solving and critical thinking.  

  • Build upon assorted skills that will help foster clinical and academic success.  

  • Promote a culture of resilience within the learning environment.   

  • Support future Health Care Professionals, Scientists and Researchers throughout their clinical and academic journey.  

The curriculum is based on best practices and is continuously being modified and improved based on ongoing feedback from learners, faculty, and the Inter-Professional Learning Environment Advisory Committee (LEAC). 

Curriculum sessions are requested by faculty only. The sessions are recommended to be included within class time.

Group Experiential Sessions

Our group experiential sessions blend group counselling with expressive tools and activities.  

Group Experiential Sessions came to fruition from a critical observation of the pressing needs among health professional learners. The learners conveyed a feeling of isolation while navigating challenges in their academic and clinical environments. Providing these sessions offers learners with a secure and confidential space to reflect on their academic and clinical experiences, develop strategies to overcome challenges, enhance their confidence, and recognize that they are not alone in their journey. The sessions are skillfully designed and facilitated by Wellness Consultants from the WELL Office.  

Group Experiential Sessions are offered at the request of the learners or from faculty who feel that a specific group of learners would benefit from this type of session. Requests can be made by contacting the office directly at thewelloffice [at] mcgill.ca
