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.

Briercrest was 4 of the greatest years of my life. I made life long friends, grew in my walk with God and of course met my husband. I learned a lot about who I am and who I am in Christ and where God wants me to be!
