Health and Counselling

Lois Williams on AHCAP

Please note courses in this program are available until December 31, 2017

Making a positive impact as a health and helping professional means more than simply caring for clients. The most successful professionals are the ones who work together to apply their skills and collaborate with clients and colleagues.

Boost your practice by updating your knowledge in an interprofessional learning environment where the emphasis is on applied skills, communication, self-care, and building a toolkit and a network with which you can grow and succeed.

Courses offered at the UBC Point Grey campus, UBC Robson Square in downtown Vancouver and online.
