February 11 - 19, 2021 Healthcare

There are more options in the field of healthcare than you may have imagined!

Is this for me?

The Discover Your Future in Healthcare series ran in February 2020 and featured 15 different occupations from the heath care sector. Sessions included a professional (or two) from the field and admissions and information on academic programming was also highlighted.

Learn valuable information about the occupation, including:

  • Details about position types, specializations and where you could work
  • Demand for this occupation and other relevant labour market information
  • Academic program and admissions information

Sessions include the obvious, such as doctor, physician assistant, or nurse, but also present occupations many don’t realize exist — such as health researcher, midwife, or genetic counsellor. Learn more about the options in healthcare as professionals speak about the occupation, their position, and experiences in the role.
