The University of Saskatchewan (USask) is one of the leading Canadian universities when it comes to healthcare. Home to the Canadian Light Source synchrotron, the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization, the International Vaccine Centre (VIDO-InterVac), and the Academic Health Sciences project, this school is a great starting point for anyone interested in a career in healthcare.
You may already know that USask is also known for its agriculture and farming programs (it is the prairies!), but did you know it’s the only of anglophone universities in Canada that has five different health science centres and a teaching hospital on campus?
