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 (TSC, 3rd Floor) 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 programmes of study are available and what their entrance requirements are. Interested students should consult these materials as early as possible, preferably before the Orientation Week interview and first-year registration.


After having consulted the Career Planning Centre, students who require further advice about dentistry prerequisites should consult Dr. Faye Murrin, Biology Department (S4109), Dr. Brian Gregory, Chemistry Department (C1021), or Dr. John Burry, Mathematics Department (HH2025) who have agreed to act as faculty advisors for pre-dental students.


Physiotherapy career information is available at the Career Planning Centre. Students requiring additional assistance or advice may arrange an appointment with Janet O'Dea.

Mrs. O'Dea has been designated by Memorial University as a liaison person with Dalhousie University, School of Physiotherapy and as a source of advice concerning other Physiotherapy Programmes in Canada.
