Health and medicine

The field of health and medicine is broad and encompasses a vast number of professions and specialized skill sets. Underlying many of these professions is a common desire to improve the lives of others by improving accessibility, safety and efficiency of care.  

Our health and medicine courses and programs are offered in a variety of topics and learning pathways to suit a range of interests, experience levels and goals. Gain an understanding of health administration through an Indigenous lens, increase your data literacy for roles in the health sector, learn how to communicate complex medical content visually or develop the knowledge and skills to oversee regulatory compliance of health products.
