Good health care encompasses every aspect of a person’s life, with the various professions working together to provide an overall sense of wellness. This is the basis for the new approach to health care emerging in Canada, where professionals from different disciplines work collaboratively to treat patients. The Centre for Health Sciences embraces this as a guiding educational principle. Our health sciences programs, faculty and facilities reflect the trends and changes taking place in the health care system. The outcome is that you are prepared to enter the field with the most current training and the ability to work with other health care professionals to deliver high quality patient care.

The new Waterfront Campus is a beautiful state-of-the-art facility built specifically for George Brown Health Sciences students. The campus is one of the city’s most architecturally striking places to study, with labs and classrooms overlooking the Toronto harbour. This campus is purpose-built to emphasize an interprofessional team-based education. From an aesthetic point of view, it is equipped with informal learning spaces, rooftop terraces, state-of-the-art labs and a strong connection to the water’s edge to the south and a beautiful park to the east. 

Just in case you don’t find the answers to all your questions here, a Welcome Desk will be located in the 1st floor lobby that can assist with directions and referrals. Start-up hours will be Monday to Friday, 7:30a.m.-5:30p.m. and regular hours will be 8:30a.m.-4:30p.m.

I think because I had such a strong vision of what I wanted to create that, soon as we acquired the property, we started construction, and about two months later, we were ready to be open. My name is Gina Faubert, and I went to George Brown College and studied Fitness and Lifestyle Management. I began the program in 1996 and I graduated in 1998. Thought about going to university and taking Rec and Leisure, and then I, um, did a little bit of research in the industry and found out that a lot of the employers, um, hands-down preferred George Brown. Based on my experience, I think that's absolutely true. There are some places I didn't even need to do an interview. It was just based on the fact that I completed the Fitness and Lifestyle Management Program. Typical day  -  we would start off, um, in the morning, and we might do some fitness testing where we're hooked up to the ECGs and blood pressure cuff and doing some stress tests. And then we would move on to a class where we talk about cardiovascular or physiology and we'd be in a lecture sort of setting. And the next class would be the aerobics class and we'd be learning how to teach a fitness class. One of the great things about George Brown is that it gave us a really firm foundation of anatomy, um, and physiology. So, I was able to take that and apply it to Pilates and to yoga. Because of our diverse education and knowledge, we were able to pick and choose what kind of environment in terms of physical education, or fitness, or health that, that really appealed to us most. I had the opportunity to work in corporate fitness, work with elite athletes, and even Olympic athletes. We really did learn an amazing amount of stuff to, to walk into an environment like that and feel confident.  By the time we were graduated I was already well on my way to having a well established business. I started off just with myself and, um, doing my personal training in my classes, and I continue to expand, and based on the needs of people, and hire another couple of instructors, a massage therapist, a nutritionist, and we just continue to expand and offer more wellness services to the clients that come to Serenity Valley. I know I wouldn't hesitate to hire a George Brown grad just knowing the level of skill and education that they have behind them. What's really great is that I get to see the evolution of people. I have a number of clients that have been coming since Serenity Valley opened. Seeing how they shift and change and how they grow as a person has been a really amazing process.
