Free tuition for indigenous medical office students at Conestoga
Conestoga College is offering free tuition for indigenous students applying to the Medical Office Practices program starting this September.
Funding for the opportunity has been provided by the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples and will pay for tuition, books and peer tutoring.
The one of a kind, one-year program readies students for administrative positions in the health care industry.
Classes are being held in Brantford.
Through the CAP funding Conestoga received, individuals of Aboriginal descent living off reserve may be eligible for free tuition, free books and peer tutoring in the program this September. For more information, contact Roxane Shawana, 519-748-5220, ext. 2457.
Students enrolled in the program will also have access to Conestoga’s Be-Dah-Bin Gamik, a Place of New Beginnings, which provides services for Aboriginal students at the college. It assists students as they transition into college life by offering social and cultural events, traditional counselling services and an Elders-in-Residence program.
