The following information is only for students applying to Health Science programs that require an additional application.

Information sessions are informal and cover admission and academic requirements, the application and selection process, curriculum, and career opportunities. Sessions, which are conducted by the program faculty, are held virtually or in person and run 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the program.
