Work Experience for St Norbert Students

“We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.”

At Queens Park Medical Centre, we contribute to the youth in our community by providing work experience opportunities.  Recently we had 2 students from St Norbert College and all doctors and staff enjoyed showing these two young ladies the workings of a busy medical centre.  We hope they enjoyed and learnt from the experience as well.

Summer Skin Checks
