Find your calling

Graduates of the School of Health Sciences are in demand and are highly valued. To handle the increasing health-care needs of the Canadian population, educated professionals are required to work in the fields of cytology, ultrasound, radiological technology, nuclear medicine, and respiratory therapy.

You may find yourself working in a large hospital or a small clinic, dealing directly with patients or working in a lab. Or you could take a different route and end up in a career with a pharmaceutical company, a government agency, or even teaching the next generation of Health Sciences students.
