Centre for Health Sciences


Training the next generation of health care professionals

George Brown College’s Centre for Health Sciences programs, faculty and facilities reflect the trends and changes taking place in the industry. Our students enter their field with the most current training and the ability to work with other professionals to deliver high-quality care.

We embrace a collaborative approach to health care training so our students are comfortable and confident in working with colleagues from various disciplines to treat patients and clients. This guiding principal mirrors the shift to interprofessional collaboration in Canada’s health care system.

How George Brown Health Sciences students learn by doing:

  • Students provide dental care, personal training and hearing test services to the public at our WAVE (Wellness, Applied Research and Visionary Education) Clinics.
  • Our Simulation Centre mimics a variety of acute hospital and long-term care settings where students can reinforce their learning by practicing skills on high and low-fidelity mannequins.
  • Our Daphne Cockwell Centre for Health Sciences at the Waterfront Campus, a state-of-the-art facility, was designed to promote collaboration between students in various Health Sciences programs.​
