The Auxiliary of the Jewish General Hospital arranges for students to spend day per week for 2 five-week periods in various departments of the hospital.

Listed below are some of the departments that received HOPS students in previous years. Please note that this information may vary from year to year.

For whom is the Program designed?

Please note

  • The main objective of the program is to sensitize students to the “general” functioning of a hospital through an observational and, on occasion, a participatory format. 
  • Due to the limited number of spaces available within each department, it is not possible to permit each student to select departments of his/her choice.
  • The Auxiliary will assign each student to different departments during the course of the Program.
  • The student will attend 10 rotations and 4 evening lectures held at the Jewish General Hospital.
  • Upon successful completion of the program, each participant will receive a certificate.
