BC announces new training seats for allied health professionals

The Government of British Columbia has announced the creation of over 300 new training seats and bursaries to support the training of allied health professionals at postsecondary institutions in the province. The announcement includes $2.5M in one-time funding to a bursary program for MRI technologist students at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, the creation of a new bridging program for paramedics at the Justice Institute of British Columbia, the creation of over 200 ongoing seats at institutions across the province, one-time funding for seats at Vancouver Community College and Thompson Rivers University, and more. “Our communities have been telling us how important the need for more health services is, and we are listening,” said BC Minister of Health Adrian Dix. “That’s why we’re supporting public post-secondary institutions to expand and create pathways to get more health workers into the system.” BC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
