Interested in pursuing a career in health care? Med Plus is a four-year non-credit program which runs concurrently with students’ academic study.

What’s involved?

We help you secure volunteer positions in Niagara where you make valuable connections and gain experience at health-related, community agencies.

Hear about one student’s experience volunteering in Med Plus.

Speaker series and observational visits help Med Plus students connect with health care professionals. Practitioners talk openly about their careers, schooling, the patients/clients with whom they work and insight into industry trends and current issues in their field.

Med Plus students can experience “a day in the life” of a health care professional that allows you to see the skills that are required for the job and how you might fit into that work setting.

Our workshops include opportunities for students to experience and put into practice key skills required in the healthcare industry including:  leadership skills,  career development, effective communication (oral and written) and medical school application and interview preparation.

Senior students share their experiences and offer support and guidance to first-year Med Plus students.

Students participate in individual and group meetings with the Med Plus Consultant to discuss progress, career plans, volunteer work, course load and the Med Plus curriculum.
