Imagine a profession where you make a positive impact every day. Whether it's tucked away in a lab or literally hands-on in a massage therapy clinic, applied health care and technology jobs touch people's lives and help improve their physical and mental health. If you're science- and technology-oriented you might want to pursue a career path as a dental assistant, medical lab technologist, pharmacy technician, nuclear medicine technologist or emergency services technician. If you are interested in working directly with people in a helping and healing capacity then a career as resident or long-term care aide, personal support worker, audiologist, acupuncturist or reiki master may be what you're looking for. Training normally requires completion of a diploma or certificate program, and so applied health care and technology is therefore different in length and focus than a university- or college-based 3- or 4-year bachelor's degree or 2-year associate's degree in an allied health field.
So whether you're looking for a degree or diploma, there are lots of options at Canada's universities, community colleges, Christian colleges and career colleges to nurture your interest in applied health care and technology.
