School of Allied Health

Healthcare is a calling. Health care workers have a profound and direct impact on many people, with rewards that can’t be quantified.

Why study at CapU's School of Allied Health?

The health care job market is seeing rapid growth due to an aging population, improved diagnostics and a growing public interest in personal health.

At Capilano University we offer one of the most innovative and progressive health care curriculums in Canada. Through degree, diploma and certificate programs you can study rehabilitation, music therapy, or personal health care assistance.

Our programs go beyond theory to focus on hands-on learning, from work practicums to supervised clinical placements in a variety of health care settings. This mix of theory and practical experience gives you the job-ready skills you’ll need when you graduate.
