Pathways to success
If you know you want to work in health sciences but aren’t sure of your academic path, this program may be ideal for you. There’s a strong focus on academic advising to support your success, and you’ll be introduced to a range of possible career paths in the health sciences field.
When you've completed this program, you can apply to transfer into one of these Sheridan programs: Athletic Therapy, Kinesiology, Practical Nursing, Pharmacy Technician, Veterinary Technician or Animal Care.
We've established articulation agreements with other Sheridan applied health programs, as well as with programs at Queen's University and York University. This means that, even if you don't meet the admission requirements for the programs listed in the agreements, you can become eligible by completing Sheridan's Pre-Health Sciences certificate program and meeting certain criteria.
Creative, innovative learning is at the core of all Sheridan’s courses. Here are the courses you’ll take in this program.
