Objective 1

Continue to evolve our curriculum to incorporate the rapidly changing advances in science and laboratory medicine.

Projects related to objective 1. We will be:

  • Establishing an Education Council
  • Embedding a core stream of “emerging essentials” that everyone who studies at LMP will develop basic literacy in, regardless of their discipline (e.g. translational research, genomics, AI, bioethics, commercialization).

Objective 2

Embed equity, diversity and inclusion into the curriculum.

Projects related to objective 2. We will be:

  • Reviewing existing programs with an Equity, Diversity, Indigeneity, Inclusion, Accessibility (EDIIA) lens
  • Reviewing recruitment practices with an EDIIA lens

Objective 3

Foster individualized pathways that allow for “personalized learning”. Strengthen education scholarship around fostering development of innovative teaching models for virtual and in-person learning.

Projects related to objective 3. We will be:

  • Expanding funding so all learners in LMP can participate in the LMP Workshop Program 
  • Expanding our portfolio of graduate modules and certificate programs as needed
  • Growing our CPD offerings 
  • Developing educational technology programs, starting with our postgraduate medical programs
  • Exploring innovative teaching models for virtual, hybrid, and in-person learning

Objective 4

Work to embed the basics of LMP knowledge into the broader medical/health science education across the Faculty to strengthen the awareness of lab diagnostics’ contributions to health outcomes.

Projects related to objective 4. We will be:

  • Inserting faculty into medical school education and creating an Associate  Chair in Undergraduate Clinical Education
  • Developing opportunities to educate the greater community on the importance of laboratory medicine in clinical practice and healthcare
