Program Requirements

To be eligible to continue to the discipline courses in the Health Service Management Program at the Medical Campus, you must meet these milestone checkpoints:

Students begin the Health Service Management Program in either January, or August each year. The required natural science and general education courses are an important part of the program. Since admissions are highly competitive and enrollment is limited, it is strongly recommended that these natural science and general education courses be completed before requesting a Milestone Review of your academic records. Please visit the Medical Campus Program Requirements website to request a Milestone Review by the target deadline dates of May 1, of each year for August (Fall semester) start and September 1, for January (Spring Semester).

You must also be enrolled in, or have successfully completed, HSC 0003/L Introduction to Healthcare Lecture and Lab. Completing these requirements will improve your chances of being selected to progress to discipline courses. Please note that taking these courses in advance does not guarantee admission. Meeting the program requirements does not guarantee selection towards beginning discipline courses. For this reason, the following criteria are used to determine which students will progress: (Please note that there is no waiting list).
