SK invests $8.1M into establishment of occupational therapy, speech language pathology programs

The Government of Saskatchewan is investing $8.1M to establish two new health-care training programs at the University of Saskatchewan. The Occupational Therapy Program and Speech Language Pathology Training Program will both award master’s degrees. These two new programs are designed so that students can complete their studies in SK, thereby addressing the shortage of workers in occupational therapy and speech language pathology. Currently SK’s interprovincial agreement programs enable students from SK who would like to study occupational therapy or speech language pathology to study out of province in Alberta. SK also announced an additional $2M for the development of a Physician Assistant program at USask that will begin in Fall 2025.
