The Health Mentors Program is an educational initiative at UBC, coordinated by the Patient & Community Partnership for Education in the Office of UBC Health. This is a unique educational program in which teams of students from different health disciplines and human service programs learn together from and with adult patients/clients with a chronic condition or disability, or health mentors can be caregivers who provide long-term care to a loved one with a chronic condition/disability.

Over the 9-month program, the student teams will visit their mentor seven times; each visit will focus on specific learning goals. The program runs from September 2022 to May 2023, and includes 50 health mentors and 200 students from eleven different health and human service programs.

I have learned so much about innovation and capacity building by being part of PVN. I signed up to build my leadership skills, however, I experience benefits for myself, my community and Indigenous peoples throughout the province. I understand more about the complexities and opportunities required to improve health care.
