The Faculty of Health Sciences & Wellness was founded within Ontario’s community college system. This history has forged a commitment to the community around us in which we live, through service to the community as part of the educational experiences that we provide to our students. We offer a broad range of opportunities for work-integrated learning experiences.
Our program advisory committees are a structured way to involve local employers and community agencies in curriculum planning. Their input, based on their knowledge of trends and emerging issues is vital to making our courses current and relevant to the practice settings. Through the representatives on these advisory committees, we establish the relationships that support us to offer quality Clinical and Field Placements for our Humber students.
