​​​​What is a Personalized Learning Program™?

​The Personalized Learning Program (PLP) is a fully customizable, observership-based program designed to meet your learning goals and objectives. No 2 PLPs are exactly the same! Through the PLP, we are able to leverage various resources and expertise throughout UHN and combine multiple programs that would aligns with your professional development goals, if applicable. We work closely with host program(s) and learners to develop an Education Plan, outlining the details and activities of the PLP. Coaching and mentoring time as well as education opportunities (rounds, journal clubs, workshops, etc.) will be scheduled as needed. This opportunity will give you the chance to network with other health care professionals in your field and build relationships. At the end of the PLP, learners will receive UHN-Michener Certificate of Completion.
