Students will participate in one mandatory paid/unpaid work term to gain 14 weeks of full-time professional work experience. This experience will enhance the theoretical learning in the program and assist students in gaining the hands-on skills required to be successful in this industry. In particular, throughout their placement students will have a number of work-related responsibilities assigned to them and take on opportunities to create, publish or assist with administrative duties. The placement will take place in a variety of business settings such as profit or not-for-profit enterprises, health, and wellness consulting firms, governmental or educational institutions or other health and wellness businesses.
Three-quarters of Canada’s top employers have existing health and wellness programs, and there are growing indications that organizations who do not address this important facet of their business will be less likely to attract and retain the key talent to sustain their enterprises. Graduates may expect good employment prospects for health and wellness positions in an array of workplaces including for-profit, not-for-profit, and public service organizations. Possible employment opportunities include working as an entrepreneur in the workplace health and wellness industry or working as a member of a health and wellness team within private (i.e., corporate wellness programs) and publicly funded programs (i.e., public health).
