Health Sciences

There are many rewarding career paths, but few match the impact a healthcare professional makes every day. Each shift you work can help save lives, restore lost capabilities or extend quality of life. Every patient you treat also touches the lives of their loved ones. Most healthcare professionals will say this is both a career path and true calling.

BC graduates help thousands of patients and families, while enjoying strong salaries, benefits, stability and professional respect as dental assistants, hygienists, nurses, EMTs, paramedics, physical, respiratory and radiation therapists, sonographers and in other critical roles, across a wide variety of care settings.
