Information for students

The Clinical & Systems Transformation (CST) project is a joint undertaking between Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) and Providence Health Care (PHC) to complete a significant transformation of clinical practices and systems.

As part of this transformation, the CST Cerner system will be implemented at around 40 facilities across VCH, PHSA and PHC. See current live sites and clinics (PDF) >

To prepare for clinical placements at sites using CST Cerner, students will need to complete all the applicable training requirements.
