Hélène is also an Instructor in the Biology Department.

If you want to keep your options open for a career in the health sciences while completing your degree, you may want to ensure that you complete courses in general/introductory chemistry, biology, social sciences*, humanities* and possibly general physics (medicine, dentistry, vet medicine, physiotherapy).  Some programs require all of these, while others have no specific course requirements other than to complete a 4-year degree or a specific number of credits/hours. Links are provided to help you make decisions on course selection and other requirements. If you still cannot find the answer to your questions, contact the school of interest directly or contact Hélène for help.
