Paramedicine: Course Sequence

Program Sequence


1. Students may also take courses in the summer, when offered. BIOB10Y may be taken in place of BIOB10H & BIOB11H.

NOTE: Centennial College courses for this program are taught at the Morningside Campus, located at 755 Morningside Ave., within walking distance of UTSC. 

NOTE: Centennial College courses must be completed in the semester that they are offered in.

Program Requirements
This program requires the completion of 16.5 credits. Including electives, students should take 2.5 credits in each semester of their four year degree.
Note: three of the PMD courses are 1.0 credit (Y courses) rather than 0.5 credit (H courses).

*A grade of 60% is required in these courses both to pass the course and to maintain standing in the program. All PMD courses are taught at Centennial College. Note, some PMD courses require that 60% be achieved in all components of the course (i.e., lecture component, practical component, and clinical-placement component).
