Confederation, Lakehead partner on in-demand health-care pathways

Confederation College and Lakehead University have signed a pathway agreement that will optimize education in health care and reduce barriers to student mobility within Northwestern Ontario. Through this agreement, graduates of select Lakehead kinesiology programs will receive advanced standing in Confederation’s Paramedic or Medical Radiation Technology diploma programs. “We have observed that students with a kinesiology degree transition smoothly into these programs, as they come equipped with a robust foundation of knowledge,” said Confederation VP Academic Aaron Skillen. “This agreement formally recognizes their prior learning, streamlining their educational journey by reducing the number of courses they need to undertake with us.”
