The construction of new facilities is vital in ensuring our students and trainees have significant opportunities to participate in clinical education in urban, regional, community and remote settings.
Major Capital Projects
The Space Planning & Facilities Management unit works with other agencies on construction projects at Health Authority facilities as well as University Campuses to ensure the Faculty of Medicine’s requirements are met. The unit contributes to high level planning and management meetings regarding the projects and reviews, monitors and analyzes Requests for Proposals (RFPs), consultant team documents, construction documents, output specifications, proponent proposal evaluations, and other related documentation to ensure the project conforms to University standards and established regulations.
Please email the Space Planning & Facilities Management team (tel: 604 822 8584) for further information regarding any of the Major Capital Projects listed here.
A functional program, typically developed by a functional programmer consultant, is a pre-design document describing the functional requirements of a building or renovation in sufficient detail to initiate schematic design.
The Space Planning & Facilities Management unit maintains an archive of Functional Programs. If you would like to request a copy of any of theFunctional Programs listed here please email the Facilities Coordinator.
Clinical Education Facilities Committee
The Clinical Education Facilities Committee (CEFC) determines the need for and recommends the establishment of clinical education facilities for health education programs in the Faculty of Medicine. It also monitors progress on such approvals, funding and implementation of such facilities as funded by the Ministries of Health and Advanced Education.
The CEFC has the authority to identify and make recommendations to the Dean as to the location and establishment of clinical teaching sites for health education programs.
- Determine the need for clinical education facilities in each region based on educational priorities.
- Articulate and utilize guiding principles for identifying potential clinical teaching sites.
- Periodically review the capacity, mix and impact of learners at clinical sites and the implications for current and future placement of learners.
- Recommend functional planning activities and communicate functional planning decisions to stakeholders.
- Develop and review AV/IT requirements for incorporation into functional plans for funding purposes.
- Recommend development of clinical education sites.
- Determine educational priorities for construction projects and ensure they are matched to funding available.
- Identify and monitor the timelines by which the sites need to be phased in and operational.
- Monitor progress throughout implementation of capital projects to ensure educational priorities are met.
- Implement the consultation and feedback process with key stakeholders, particularly MPAACT, Health Authorities, Joint Advisory Councils and the Ministry of Health to ensure site selections are aligned with strategic plans.
