Develop knowledge and skills to continue your studies in health sciences.
The one-year Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees is an Ontario College Certificate program that prepares you for more advanced health science programs. You develop strong study skills and earn post-secondary credits that may transfer to other post-secondary programs.
As a student, you explore your interests in the health science field while meeting the eligibility requirements for a number of Algonquin College advanced diploma programs. These include:
Biotechnology - Advanced (Co-op and Non-Co-op Version)
Medical Radiation Technology
In addition, graduates may be eligible to apply to various degree programs including:
Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) at the University of Ottawa
Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHSc) at the University of Ottawa
Bachelor of Human Kinetics (BHK) at the University of Ottawa
Bachelor of Science in Kinetics (BScHK) at the University of Ottawa
Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHSc) at Queen`s University
The curriculum provides you with the opportunity to learn more about potential careers in the health sciences as you improve your skills in communications, mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics.
The intention of this program is to prepare you for further study in either advanced diploma or degree programs, rather than moving directly into a chosen industry. It is important to note that completing this program does not guarantee entry into a health or science program.
Students interested in further academic study in a health-related one-year certificate or two-year diploma program should consider applying to the Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Certificates and Diplomas program.
This program is well suited to individuals who:
Are interested in health sciences.
Have good study habits and time management skills.
Enjoy working with others and as a member of a team.
Are attentive to detail.
Have an interest in enhancing their aptitude in math and science.
