Make the most of your time in the Faculty of Health Sciences

University is about so much more than study. Engaging with the community, sharing interests with new friends, and learning new skills are all part of the undergraduate experience. Find out how to enhance your time in the Faculty of Health Sciences.

Join a club

Joining a club is a great way to meet like-minded people and develop skills as part of the exciting campus community. Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS) Clubs span a wide range of interests—from salsa dancing to preparing for medical school.

Join the Health Sciences Undergraduate Student Union (HSUSU)

The Health Sciences Undergraduate Student Union (HSUSU) represents the interests of FHS’s undergraduate study body to the university, and helps new undergraduates ease into student life. HSUSU is completely student-run by volunteers, offering leadership opportunities for students involved in running the union.

Peer mentorships

The Faculty of Health Sciences Peer Mentorship Program matches upper-level students with first-year Health Sciences students to provide mentorship and guidance. Senior undergraduates develop mentoring skills, and freshmen benefit from peer support to help them transition into university life.

Health innovation

Participate in experiential learning courses like Health Change Lab for an opportunity to work with community partners to solve real world health issues.

Co-op programs

Co-op students alternate between study semesters and paid, resume-boosting work semesters. Co-op students graduate with real-world work experience and an advantage over the competition.

Student exchange program

Travel to new and exciting places, complete credit-earning courses that may not be available at SFU, and build cross-cultural understanding to strengthen your independent and reflective learning skills. Studying abroad offers a world of opportunity.
