An Education Affiliation Agreement between the education institution and the health authority or agency is required for all practice education placements.
An affiliation agreement:
PHSA and its programs use standardized templates for affiliation agreements governing all student placements in health authorities.
UCIPP member Affiliation Agreement template
Non-UCIPP Affiliation Agreement template (includes all private and out-of-province institutions)
When Students or Institution Staff are responsible for arranging their own medical/accident insurance, append the Waiver to the above Non-UCIPP Affiliation Agreement Template.
The templates are supported by the BC Health Care Protection Program and the University, College, Institute Protection Program, at the Ministry of Finance.
If the institution does not have an existing Affiliation Agreement with PHSA, a minimum of three months is required to process an Affiliation Agreement before the placement commences. This process should be coordinated by the educational institution's representative for Affiliation Agreements, in collaboration with the health authority representative.
