Center for Learning and Professional Development

The Center for Learning and Professional Development (CLPD) offers diverse and innovative learning opportunities to enable health care professionals to maintain and improve their knowledge, skills, and behaviors. We serve as a source of lifelong learning to members of healthcare teams who seek educational support in an ever-changing clinical environment in order to achieve enhanced outcomes for patients in their care.

Our mission

We improve patient and learner well-being through the education of healthcare professionals. With a commitment to equity, diversity, quality, safety, and accreditation, we strive for innovation in the application of evidence-based and learner-centric strategies for continuing, interprofessional education and professional development.
