Internationalization is made up of a wide range of academic and professional activities, organizational policies, procedures and strategies – which integrate an international dimension or perspective into teaching, training, research and service functions of the university” (BC Council for International Education, 2004).

The FHS Internationalization committee will act as a resource to faculty and students concerning international opportunities for health sciences students and faculty.

Our Beliefs

We believe that health professionals in Canada must contribute to the
advancement of global health and equity. (CNA, 2005)

We believe that international health partnerships increase global opportunities for
students and faculty.

We believe that nursing, dental and kinesiology and physical education programs should educate students to function in the global community.

We believe that internationalization should be a concept inherent throughout the health sciences faculty.
