Enrolment or Re-enrolment

New to UBC

Students interested in pursuing the Infection Prevention and Control Certificate or in taking one of the online courses must be admitted to UBC.

  1. Become a Non-degree Studies student as an Unclassified (i.e. you have completed an undergraduate degree) or Visiting student (i.e. you are enrolled in a degree program at another institution).
  2. Complete the 3 online courses (PATH 427, PATH 467, PATH 477).  Please note each course is offered only one time per year.  It is recommended that students begin with PATH 427, which is a prerequisite for PATH 477.
  3. Contact us once you’ve completed the 3 online courses and you’re ready to enrol in PATH 451 Clerkship in Laboratory Medicine and Infection Prevention and Control.
