The School of Health Sciences offers a post diploma program leading to a Bachelor of Health Science in Diagnostic Cytology, Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine Technology, Radiological Technology and Respiratory Therapy, and Medical Laboratory Technology. The Post Diploma BHSc program has been developed to meet the needs of practicing technologists, sonographers and therapists who have an interest in the opportunity to complete a baccalaureate degree as a means of pursuing life long learning and expanding career opportunities.
Through a guided selection process, students choose courses that contribute to their professional growth and interest. Students are afforded the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of the Canadian healthcare system, as well as to enhance their leadership abilities and to equip them for participation in a rapidly changing healthcare environment.
The post diploma BHSc curriculum is equivalent to 2 years of full-time university study (60 credit hours). Courses may be completed in the sequence best suited for the student; however, attention must be paid to course pre-requisites. To accommodate the working professional, the post diploma program is available on a full time or part-time basis and many of the courses are delivered via distributed (i.e., distance) learning, using the Blackboard Learning System. There are university regulations concerning the maximum length of time allowed for degree completion.
