Course Selection

Just prior to the start of each academic year, you will be sent instructions from the Health Management program office explaining the enrolment process and the steps you need to follow to successfully enrol in your academic terms. You are required to take the appropriate number of courses per semester.


Taking a Leave

McMaster University has mechanisms in place to support students to take a leave from their studies. A Leave of Absence (LOA) for up to one year is permitted for reasons of illness, financial hardship, or for reasons related to family responsibilities such as pregnancy and child rearing. LOA for reasons of illness, or financial hardship are granted, provided that the Program Co-Directors and the SGS review and support the request, which must be approved by an Associate Dean of Graduate Studies. Please contact if you are considering this action.
