Ontario CLRI at Baycrest Welcomes Innovation and Aging Internship Students

Posted On: June 22, 2021

Our team at the Ontario CLRI at Baycrest is thrilled to welcome 10 post-secondary students from various health professions across Ontario. They will be the first group of interns to work virtually with us for summer 2021. This internship provides interns the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in the gerontological field. Students will participate in small group learning focused on aging, clinical issues in gerontology, and interprofessional skills.

“We’re excited to share experiences with the students of what it’s like to live and work in long-term care. Fostering positive experiences paves the way for students seeking careers in long-term care,” says Raquel Meyer, manager of the Ontario CLRI at Baycrest team.

The first cohort of students will be at Baycrest until the end of June when most will return to their studies. Please join us in welcoming these 10 exceptional students!

The Ontario CLRI develops, delivers and evaluates educational resources and programs to train the current and future LTC workforce. We build on partnerships with homes, colleges and universities to provide in-person, blended and virtual training for interprofessional teams, as well as student placements and internships.
