Confederation collaborates with Kenora school, hospital to offer dual-credit program


Confederation College is partnering with Beaver Brae High School and Lake of the Woods District Hospital (LWDH) to offer a dual-credit program for Kenora secondary school students interested in the health sector. Students who take part in the semester-long pilot program will earn credits toward their high school and college education. They will engage in hands-on learning in the LWDH simulation suite and Confederation Health lab to better understand the Canadian health care system and explore health-related careers. “It is our hope that this pilot project will help engage students in a unique learning environment, while preparing them for their post-secondary education,” said Confederation School of Health Dean Shane Strickland.
