I have a friend who was graduate from medical radiation science program in McMaster/Mohawk 5 years ago and she has been a ultrasound Sonographer since then. She has two part time positions in Toronto General Hospital and another one which I cannot remember. The pay is good, roughly $40 per hour. The drawback is nowadays it is a little difficult to find a full time position. That is why she has two part time jobs.

I don't know anyone who is taking respiratory therapy so I cannot give you a bold guess.

In my opinion, both of them are good health science programs. But McMaster/Mohawk takes longer because it rewards you a degree rather than a diploma. Michener is very famous in applied health science within Ontario and no other college can beat it.

In sum, you have to consider many aspects before making the final decision, such as location, tuition, program length, career perspective, etc.

However, the most important thing is "INTEREST". That is the driven power for you to devote yourself into it with minimum complaints.

Just imaging doing a job that you hate for your rest of life. That is horrible.

So do the things that interest you most, and finally all your efforts will be rewarded.

Good luck!

Hi!

Does anyone know where and when students can access information about textbooks etc. Is there a Facebook group (specifically for the Respiratory therapy program). Thanks in advance!

The textbook list is accessible on their website (Google it).

Short answer: Yes. It's probably better to wait for the administration to email you about it though ...

Hello Everyone,
I am also looking to apply for the Radiology/ Respiratory programs at Michener. I was just wondering what the cut off was for the grades. My grades aren't the best so I'm worried that I will not get as far as the MMI. Please help me with this dilemma. If I have a better understanding of the grades, I will just have to choose another option from Seneca even though I didn't find a great program there yet.
Thanks

does anyone know the approximate cut-off for grades for the medical lab sciences program? what high school averages did you have? do you know what a good competitive average would be? thanks!

From what I remember in the past, your high school average needs to be at least 85% or higher to get an interview. It may have gone up since then.
