SK invests $5M to reserve seats in out-of-province health sciences programs


The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $5M to reserve 149 seats in health sciences programs outside the province. With this funding, SK renewed interprovincial agreements to reserve seats in cardiovascular perfusion, diagnostic medical sonography, electroneurophysiology, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine technology, occupational therapy, prosthetics and orthotics, and respiratory therapy; as well as establishing a new agreement for speech-language pathology. “These agreements allow Saskatchewan students to complete their clinical placements here at home, connecting students to jobs in the province and helping meet critical health care system needs,” said SK Advanced Education Minister Gordon Wyant.
