The Wilson Centre is a global leader in advancing healthcare education and practice through research. The vision of the Wilson Centre highlights its aspiration to be a global leader, and reiterates its fundamental role in research that advances healthcare education and practice. These are not two discrete activities; rather, research in healthcare education informs practice, and research in the practice of healthcare informs education. The mission statement identifies what an organization does to achieve its vision. The mission of the Wilson Centre encapsulates three parallel paths towards realising the vision.
