The Clinical Learning and Interprofessional Practice (CLIPP) unit facilitates discussion between partner organizations and the development, implementation and evaluation of collaborative projects related to clinical education and interprofessional practice in Saskatchewan. The CLIPP unit also manages the Health Sciences Placement network used by many of the health science programs in Saskatchewan to request and coordinate clinical placements for students.
Resources currently found on the CLIPP website will be moving to www.saskhealthauthority.ca in the fall of 2019. The amalgamation of former Regional Health Authorities to the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA), has created an opportunity for the Saskatchewan health system to reshape the way we administer and support clinical placements. The functions of the CLIPP unit will be transitioning to the SHA Academic Health Sciences department within the Academics & Learning portfolio. Please note that the current website will no longer be available following the transition to the SHA.
