Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

    The term “public health” can conjure a variety of images and ideas for individuals in Canadian society and abroad. For some, it means screening for communicable diseases, mass immunization programs or legislation for healthy and safe work environments. For others, public health means the creation of governmental agencies or combating Ebola and the Zika virus. Overall, the aim of public health is to empower residents to make informed decisions and partake in interventions that seek to preserve, promote, and restore their health.

    The Human Health Specialization will prepare you for health-related post-graduate studies such as, medicine, epidemiology, and dentistry. You will take upper-year electives that extend your knowledge in core areas as well as integrate a critical knowledge and understanding of the health-care system in Canada. The Human Health Science specialization offers you an opportunity to learn a broad range of topics related to health. This specialization focuses on the fundamental areas of science as it relates to human health and disease including:

    Graduate Programs

  • Experiential learning

    Partnership, collaboration and a multidisciplinary approach to enhancing health care are cornerstones in the development of health services. Hands-on experience is a valuable asset for all of our students; we are pleased to offer a number of opportunities for our students to take what they learn in the classroom and apply it in a workplace setting.

    Clinical learning experience

    Nursing

    With the Nursing program's strong clinical focus, you have opportunities each year to develop your nursing skills and knowledge in the finest hospitals and agencies in the region through clinical placements.

    Clinical placements are a core component in each year of the Nursing program, starting from the first year of studies. Students appreciate and embrace the opportunity to apply their learning in a clinical setting. They are committed to becoming leaders in health-care delivery. They recognize the necessity and importance of working with trained professionals and their patients to enhance their knowledge and further their own skills and professional development.

    Medical Laboratory Science

    The integration of classroom instruction and clinical practice is also the foundation of our Medical Laboratory Science program. You learn and enhance your technical and professional skills through laboratory activities in each of the three years at the university and gain extensive experience in fourth year during a two-semester practicum at one of our affiliated clinical sites. This practicum experience positions you for career success by:

    • Providing networking opportunities.
    • Facilitating professional mentoring.
    • Fostering the development of teamwork and leadership.

    Research practicum

    Students in all Health Sciences programs can apply for a fourth-year Research Practicum that extends throughout their final year of studies. Working under the direction of a research tutor, both university- and community-based, you receive a practical experience that exemplifies the collaborative research process while providing you with a valued opportunity to apply your knowledge in a research setting.

    Internships

    Kinesiology students may pursue internship opportunities for one term or a full year. Working in the field of athletic therapy or exercise and rehabilitation, you are able to use skills you learned in the classroom and apply them to real-world experiences.

    There is a strong emphasis on practical, hands-on experience throughout the university's Kinesiology specialization. In Year 4 there are both Kinesiology and Athletic Therapy internships. Students gain practical experience applying the knowledge gained in their undergraduate degree.

    Co-op education program

    A five-year Co-operative Education option is available in undergraduate programs with the Faculty of Science which satisfies the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education guidelines. These programs combine an Honours Bachelor of Science program with embedded work terms. The co-op option provides students with opportunities to apply classroom and lab concepts to real-world situations and gain valuable, relevant work experience. Co-op opportunities promote networking and lifelong career success as the experience helps clarify career objectives.

    Students are able to be on co-op placement for four, eight, 12, or 16 consecutive months.
