NIC launches Island Pre-Health Science program


North Island College has announced the Island Pre-Health Science program, which will provide students with a pathway to university-level medical and health science programs. The program will enable students to stay local while they prepare for a professional degree in areas such as medicine, dentistry, optometry, health science research, and more. “The curriculum is designed to provide a holistic understanding of health science and issues unique to rural, remote communities [and combines] foundational science courses with social scientific approaches, Indigenous ways of knowing and, a community-learning strategy,” said NIC faculty of arts, science & management dean Dr Neil Cruickshank.
