UBC Health is a partnership of all the academic health programs at UBC in order to further enhance the success and impact of our research and educational programs. The enabling role of UBC Health allows for the achievement of common goals while respecting the distinct disciplines and preserving unit autonomy. The two primary outcomes of the integration are:
- Strengthened UBC impact and capacity for excellence in health and life sciences education and research
- Improved capability and positioning of UBC to play a leadership role in the creation of an Academic Health Sciences Centre and Network (AHSC/N) The Network will link UBC, other health programs, research institutes, and relevant stakeholders to: improve research, education and training effectiveness for an optimal health human workforce; accelerate the translation of innovation into practice; and foster private sector participation.
