Student Placement Advisory Group

The MDHS Student Placement Advisory Group (SPAG) is responsible for discussing  current challenges and best practices in student clinical and non-clinical placements across the Faculty. The SPAG committee is empowered to take collective action to enhance student placement programs in the Faculty and may refer matters to the MDHS Academic Programs Committee and/or MDHS Clinical Education Strategy and Risk Committee as needed.

It is a collaborative space with working groups to address opportunities for development, improvement in processes and strategies as well as providing a supportive space to share ideas and learn from each other’s practices.
