In June 2012, CAMH launched Vision 2020
: tomorrow.today, to define its vision as a progressive, 21st century academic health sciences centre.
A key component of this Strategic Plan is Strategic Direction 5 – Revolutionize Education and Knowledge Exchange
. CAMH has embarked upon this vision with the creation of the CAMH Education Strategy, 2013–2016. This plan will help enact is the creation of an organization in which everyone is a learner and everyone is a teacher. The result will be a cohesive learning or
ganization and knowledge network that enhances and supports continuous learning together for staff, patients, families and the community.
The Education Strategic Plan has been developed by many people, within and beyond the walls of CAMH, each of whom believes that through education we can transform the lives of our patients and their families. This plan will make CAMH a preferred learning and teaching environment for mental health by ensuring that all students, from every profession, have a high-quality experience and that teachers are supported and mentored to be global leaders and agents of inspirational change. This plan will grow inter-professional teams and support professional development. In addition, re-visioning the role of patients and families in the education experience lies at the heart of this education revolution.CAMH Education Strategy, 2013–2016 (PDF)
