Ontario Shores is nothing short of amazing. I can confidently say that this hospital has provided me with many opportunities to gain knowledge on a wide range of topics in mental health care. I have been able to learn from leaders in the field, and demonstrate my skills through a variety of academic endeavors. Although Ontario Shores offers an incredible learning experience for its students, what sets it apart is the people. The staff and patients function as a family, opening their arms to everyone with kindness and respect. I have never felt as welcomed as I do here, and because of that I believe Ontario Shores is an excellent placement for any student.
At Ontario Shores my skillset as an epidemiologist has been expanded and strengthened, through collaborative work with innovators in the field. I have been provided with incredibly valuable learning opportunities and networking connections.

When I was told my consolidation would be within the EDU unit at Ontario Shores I was nervous and excited at the opportunity of supporting adolescents with eating disorders/mental illness. The entire team consisting of RNs, RPNs, Doctors, Nurse Practitioner, Behavioural Therapists, Recreation Therapists, Occupational Therapists, etc have been extremely professional, open to my many questions and very supportive of my learning and understanding how to best support he patients on the unit. My preceptor has gone above and beyond in teaching me and developing me to allow success.

I really appreciated how open other departments were to interprofessional collaboration and to the input of students in decision making.

Ontario Shores has provided me with an incredible learning experience. Working on the In-Patient units provided me with a clear example of what a well functioning inter-professional team looks like. I had amazing preceptors who guided me throughout my rotation and provided me with enough independence to challenge my learning. I can't say enough about my experience.
I'm so glad I had the opportunity to have a clinical rotation at Ontario Shores. Dedicated staff, helpful supervisors and the beautiful facility made for a fantastic learning experience. Each day walking through the doors I felt the sense of community and the passion to teach from my supervisors. It was an absolute pleasure coming into work.
