The Collaborating Centre for Prison Health and Education is actively seeking ways to develop and expand prison health interdisciplinary education at the University of British Columbia.
We offer a 3-credit 4th year undergraduate prison health course at UBC. SPPH 481C: Prison Health aims to educate students from a variety of disciplines to respond to current health issues within the Canadian correctional system. Through readings, reflective writing, guest presentations and seminar-style class discussions, students will learn about the complexities of healthcare for people in prison and will gain understanding and skills in order to apply inter-disciplinary approaches to prison health care.
