Graduation, Attrition and Placement Rates

We have had a 97% graduation rate amongst students enrolled in the program and employment opportunities have been excellent. There are very few accredited pathologists' assistant training programs in North America and the demand for graduates is high. Graduates from our program are working in provinces across Canada, from British Columbia to the Maritimes, as well as in the USA. Our program has a 91% pass rate for the American Society for Clinical Pathology Board of Certification examination.

All of our graduates seeking employment upon graduation (86% of grads) found jobs before graduation; many have had multiple job offers. The remainder chose to continue their education.
