Health Sciences

Prepare for work as a competent and compassionate health care professional.

Students in Health Sciences at Briercrest are equipped both academically and spiritually for careers in health care. Our programs all begin at Briercrest, where students can take the courses they need from a biblical perspective and grow as followers of Jesus. Building on this foundation, students transfer to our partner institutions to continue their training in health sciences.

Students graduate and pursue health care careers in places such as hospitals, outpatient clinics, the criminal justice system, employee assistance programs, schools, ministries, and non-profit organizations.

    Student story: Captain The Reverend Eric Davis

    Capt The Rev Eric Davis, current Seminary student and military chaplain, shares about serving in the Canadian Armed Forces, overcoming mental health obstacles, and studying Christian Counselling at Briercrest.

The professors really promote in-class discussion and I thrive off of that. The level of the engagement the professors show in their material encourages me to also have a deep level of engagement.
