Overview

Students in lab This program has an interdisciplinary focus, weaving together physiological, sociological and epidemiological perspectives on major health issues.

In the Human Health Science specialization, you will learn the fundamental areas of science related to human health and disease, including anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, microbiology and neurophysiology.

Individuals interested in this specialization will apply directly to Human Health Science through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre using application code DHH.


As a new international student, I studied Year 1 in Health Sciences completely online from a country with an eight-hour time difference. It was a different shift than what I am used to, but I had a number of understanding professors who worked closely with me to aid in my success, as well as support from tutors, academic advisors and international advisors just a click away. I was still able to have a strong connection with my peers and professors, even though I was not physically on campus. I am excited to see what my next year brings and cannot wait to see ԰AV’s beautiful campus in person.
