COVID-19 Updates

In line with current public health guidancemasking is strongly recommended as a way to protect yourself from COVID-19 – particularly in indoor settings where physical distancing cannot be maintained. In line with other health care facilities, Health Services and the Sports Medicine Clinic will continue to require masks.

Although proof of vaccination is not required to access campus or participate in in-person Carleton activities, it may become necessary to bring back proof of vaccination requirements on short notice if the situation and public health advice changes. All Carleton students, faculty and staff continue to be required to attest to their vaccination status and, if vaccinated, upload proof of vaccination and subsequent booster doses in cuScreen as soon as possible.


For any questions, please contact the office at for Undergrad Students and for Graduate students.  We are doing all we can to keep our community safe and to contribute to slowing the progression of COVID-19 in Ottawa and across the country.

For more information, please visit  Carleton’s Coronavirus page.

Thank you.

Department of Health Sciences


Our Mission:

To understand the complexities of health and disease, and develop solutions that address current and emerging health issues, a new approach is needed.

The Department of Health Sciences brings a new vision to health education and research that positions us as trailblazers in understanding and addressing the health of individuals, populations, and societies.

Our department was founded with the recognition that the best health education and research must include collaborations between individuals and groups across disciplines, from biomedical, social, mathematical, environmental, political sciences and beyond.

By integrating knowledge and methods from these different fields, we offer interdisciplinary learning and research experiences that set our students apart, and ensures their success in meeting their academic and professional goals.
