Elective learning activities can be categorized into one of three colours:

Red Learning Activities (30-45 points):
These learning activities are usually an exposure to a topic. They are generally interactive and topic-based rather than case-based. Examples include learning activities related to quality and patient/client safety or communication.

Orange Learning Activities (50-60 points):
These learning activities are usually at an immersion level. They are often case-based and have a higher degree of team interactions.

Green Learning Activities (60 points):
These learning activities involve multiple interactions among teams of students, are usually project or case-based and may extend longitudinally (e.g. three interviews over the course of the year).
