The Public Health & Informatics Symposium is hosted by the Bachelor of Environmental Public Health (BEPH) program, and the Bachelor of Applied Health Information Science (BAHIS) program.
An innovative four-year degree program (including one paid co-op term), delivered at the honours level will prepare graduates for a number of progressive public and private sector careers as environmental public health professionals (EPHPs). The program has been accredited by the Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors (CIPHI). EPH focuses on disease prevention and creating healthy supportive environments. EPH encompasses assessment and control of factors in the environment that target disease prevention and positively impact population and community health.
Our graduates help fill a skill shortage and are in demand for jobs as data analysts, business intelligence specialists, privacy professionals, and clinical informatics specialists. The Bachelor of Applied Health Information Science (Honours) degree is an innovative four-year, paid co-op program that will prepare graduates for a number of in-demand careers in the health-care industry. Our graduates enable the health-care system to achieve its goals of person-centred, safe, high quality, and sustainable health care through data-informed problem solving.
