" After my second year I had the opportunity to work at an Ottawa hospital doing cancer research. Not only have my Health Science courses equipped me to succeed at my job there, the internship component of the program will enable me to earn academic credit when I go back to work at the hospital. It’s incredible how much of what I learned is being applied in the work I’m doing. It’s a great feeling when that happens! "
