Field and clinical placement is a crucial part of any learning in health sciences. Classroom learning gives you the foundation, placement gives you the experience. Humber's School of Health Sciences offers placements through their extensive partnerships with hospitals, long term care facilities, industry groups, community and educational agencies and other facilities throughout the greater Toronto and surrounding areas. Learn by doing, and experience first-hand what it means to work in your chosen field. This is the valuable introduction into your future


Most placements for Health Sciences programs require the following:

          • a complete immunization record
          • Police Record Check for those programs and occupations involving direct contact with vulnerable persons
          • Standard First Aid Certificate
          • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certificate - Level C

Before You Begin

If you are a returning student, bring the mandatory medical and non-medical form that you took to the Health Centre in previous semesters to obtain a passport. When you submitted your form to the Health Centre previously, you were advised to ensure you had a copy for your records prior to submitting the form to the Health Centre. If you did not make a copy, you will need to go to the Health Centre and retrieve a copy prior to your pre-requisit screening appointment.
