Teaching Opportunities in Mississauga


Trillium Health Partners (THP) is a learning organization dedicated to providing high-quality patient-centered care, and committed to educating the next generation of physicians and health professionals.  Physicians and staff members have many opportunities to participate in a wide range of exciting experiences across multiple teaching locations, including all Trillium Health Partners sites, the Terrence Donnelly Health Science Complex (TDHSC) at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM), St. George Campus of the University of Toronto, and community offices.

Teaching styles:

  • Preceptor/Clinical Teaching – Supervision of learners in clinical areas where there is direct patient contact.
  • Formal/Direct Teaching – Interactive small group teaching where specific content is taught over a short period of time (i.e. clinical skills, case-based learning, interview skills, etc.). It often takes place in a classroom type setting.
  • Facilitation – This encompasses a more relaxed form of teaching where the agenda will be driven to some extent by the learners. This occurs mainly within Portfolio teaching.
