Pre-Programs Pre-programs are post-secondary certificate programs that offer students the opportunity to take courses for career exploration or to qualify for further study. With small class sizes, dedicated teachers and built-in advising and supports, the pre-programs help students strengthen their academic skills and prepare for further coursework.
The Pre-Health Science program at George Brown College prepares students academically for future study in many Health Sciences programs through setting a foundation in core mathematics and science courses and providing an overview of the health-care industry. Upon completion of the program, our students have a variety of options, including Practical Nursing, Dental Assisting, Fitness and Health Promotion, Orthotics/Prosthetics, Medical Office Administration, Hearing Instrument Specialist and Activation Co-ordinator/Gerontology, among others.
Today’s health-care employers are looking for skilled workers to address a critical labour shortage in the industry. Pre-Health Science provides students with practical training, confidence building and communication skills needed to excel in many health-care programs and future careers in the field. Through classroom and hands-on study, students explore careers in the health sciences/services sector, including those in health-care institutions or with health-care providers. Students also gain a basic understanding of social sciences and human relations – essential skills for the field of health sciences.
Career development, academic advising and student success services will support career exploration and other academic needs of all Pre-Health Science students.
