Health Information Science Co-op
As a health information science student, you’ll bring your studies to life through co-op. Your program includes a mandatory co-op component that lets you alternate your academic terms with three co-op terms working for health care employers.
Through co-op, you'll gain relevant work experience, build competencies, earn some extra cash and have a better shot at landing your dream job after graduation. Want to know what it's like to be a co-op student? Check out our student stories!

How to join
Co-op is mandatory for all undergraduate students enrolled in the Health Information Science program. You don't have to apply to join—you’re automatically enrolled in co-op as part of your academic program.
Graduating with co-op designation
If you successfully complete the requirements of the co-op program, you'll earn a co-op distinction on your degree when you graduate.
Undergraduate students must complete three four-month work terms to graduate with co-op designation. Graduate students must complete two to three work terms.
