Home For The Summer Program

"I had a summer rich in learning opportunities and inter-professional experiences with the wonderful staff at the Bethesda Regional Health Centre. They exemplified patient centered care and created a working environment where going the extra mile for their patients was the norm." 

"The Home for the Summer Program has given me experiences beyond what I would have gotten at my usual summer job. I feel more prepared and less nervous for my clinical placement this year because of the learning experiences I was able to have through the program."
