GENERAL INFORMATION

Because admission requirements vary significantly in different institutions and from one health science to another (e.g., Dentistry, Dental Hygiene, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy), interested students are advised to plan carefully and early.

The Career Planning Centre, located on the, 4th floorl, Room 4002 of the University Centre, can provide advice or, in some instances, arrange for students to contact other sources of more detailed information. The Centre maintains considerable information on careers in the various health fields, including guides and university calendars outlining where the programs of study are available and their entrance requirements. Interested students should consult these materials as early as possible, preferably before the Orientation Week interview and first-year registration.
