Welcome to the Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s School of Health Sciences website!

I am thrilled to lead the many committed and outstanding educators in Sask Polytechnic’s School of Health Sciences. Each day our faculty and staff demonstrate their commitment to providing students with an exceptional applied learning experience for the hundreds of students enrolled in our programs. Their dedication and innovation is demonstrated through their interactive hands on approach to course delivery as well as their ability to connect the learner to the industry that the student will one day join. For each of our programs in the School, the market’s demand for knowledgeable, dedicated and skilled individuals pursuing a career in health sciences continues to be very strong. Matching high quality education experiences with a demanding and rewarding career setting is a challenge I feel privileged to be a part of!

At Sask Polytech we have a proud history of providing the health system with excellent graduates who are committed to making a difference in the lives of the patients, clients and residents that they ultimately serve.

Look closely and you will see we are working in both human and animal care! In addition, the learning continues with a large number of continuing education programs. Graduates of our programs are positioned throughout the health system providing front line care and leadership. 

Our students have the benefit of a full range of support services that are tailored to their needs. Coupled with state of the art simulation environments our learning environment is well positioned to support the students’ learning journey. We cherish our relationship with our industry partners who share their clinical environments and allow us to offer exciting clinical placement opportunities that are supportive of the students.
