UManitoba adds seats to health care programs, announces construction of new building


The University of Manitoba has announced that it will be expanding its health care training and constructing a new building at the Bannatyne Campus to accommodate these students. UManitoba’s Max Rady College of Medicine will add 15 seats to its undergraduate medical education program this fall and an additional 15 seats in 2024. Other programs receiving increased seats include the International Medical Graduate program and the Bachelor of Respiratory Therapy (RT) program. At its Bannatyne Campus, UManitoba will be constructing a training space that will house classrooms, simulation labs, a theatre, the new Ongomiizwin — Indigenous Institute of Health and Healing dental clinic, and a childcare centre. It has received a $40M commitment from the Government of Manitoba in support of these projects.
