WHAT'S AN OS?
The Online Supplements (OS) for Education support reflexive approaches to education and teaching within the health professions. Ideally, these OS's should be used in conjunction with in-person sessions as educators can then contextualize content, promote dialogue, and debrief activities.
These free, open-access OS's were originally funded by the Centre for Faculty Development (CFD) and the Arrell Family Chair in Health Professions Teaching and are now maintained in partnership by the CFD and the Centre for Advancing Collaborative Healthcare & Education (CACHE).
Our team, based in Toronto, Canada, is continually updating, improving, and developing additional OS's.
Please email us with any feedback.
