The Discover Your Future in Healthcare series will feature 15 different occupations from the heathcare sector. Sessions will include a professional (or two) from the field and admissions and information on academic programming will also be highlighted.

You will have the opportunity to 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.
