LETHBRIDGE, AB. – There is an awful lot of interest these days in health care programs at the University of Lethbridge.

In fact, interest in public health and health-care careers are at an all-time high. The University of Lethbridge is leaving open application windows for a variety of graduate level programs that span the health-care spectrum.

Dr. Shannon Spenceley, acting dean in the U of L’s Faculty of Health Sciences, says they’ve seen remarkable growth in applications to undergraduate programs focused on health care.

She says by leaving open these application windows, the University hopes to better meet the needs of those already employed in health care and give them the opportunity to advance their careers in their respective fields.
