Whether you want to enter the field of health care directly after graduation or use your education to help advance your career, we have a Health Sciences program that can start you on your journey.
Choose from many OL and TRU courses to fulfil your program requirements. You can also take post-secondary courses elsewhere and transfer them to your OL program. See BC Council on Admissions and Transfer to explore your options.
