Graduates from the M.Sc. or Ph.D. program can pursue career opportunities in academia, health, business/industry, education or government. Graduates interested in academia can potentially pursue careers as research scientists/postdoctoral fellows or biologists in universities, Health Canada or the National Research Council.

Students interested in health professions could consider careers (in some cases following further education) in medicine, as a rehabilitation counselor, behavioural therapist, speech-language pathologist, public health officer, neurologist, microbiologist, genetic counselor, biomedical lab technician, health planner/consultant, toxicologist, or mental health worker.

Within business or industry, career paths may include technical writer, pharmaceutical sales, consultant, researcher or analyst.

Within education, graduates may find positions in journalism, teaching, as instructors, or as policy developers. Finally, government positions include patent officer, forensic scientist, and management positions within health-related organizations.
