Expanding pathways in Allied Health Sciences


Ontario Tech University and Georgian College are proposing to develop online pathways from Georgian's Acupuncture program (Ontario College Advanced Diploma) and two of its Human Services programs - Developmental Services Worker and Social Services Worker (Ontario College Diploma programs) into Ontario Tech University's Bachelor of Allied Health Sciences (BAHSc) program with the option of further articulating into Ontario Tech University's unique online Graduate Diploma in Work Disability Prevention (WDP). The Graduate Diploma in WDP contains four courses and a practicum. The four courses will be offered as electives in the BAHSc so that interested students who take the BAHSc pathway can complete all Graduate Diploma in WDP coursework as part of their Honours Bachelor Degree. Graduates from the BAHSc would only have to complete the practicum of the Graduate Diploma to achieve the credential of Graduate Diploma in WDP.
