IEMLT - Bridging Education Opportunity
June 10, 2022
Dear Internationally Educated Medical Laboratory Technologist:
The Province of Nova Scotia is currently experiencing a shortage of Medical Laboratory Technologists. I am reaching out to you as an internationally educated and experienced Medical Laboratory Technologist who has undergone a prior learning assessment by the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) and has been identified as requiring skill and knowledge enhancement training in order to write the licensing exam to practice in Canada.
The Province of Nova Scotia is exploring an opportunity for internationally educated Medical Laboratory Technologists to participate in the Medical Laboratory Science Bridging program offered through the Michener Institute in Toronto, Ontario. The 16-week program would be a blended model that would allow participants to study on-line and complete lab-work at various sites in Nova Scotia. As currently modeled, participants would not need to go to Toronto for any component of the program.
Information on the Michener program is found here: https://michener.ca/program/bpml/.
To be sponsored by the Province of Nova Scotia in this program participants would be required to become residents of Nova Scotia and agree to work as a Medical Laboratory Technologist in Nova Scotia for a defined period of time, yet to be determined.
If you are interested in this potential opportunity, please contact Joe Meahan, Higher Education Strategist with the Nova Scotia Department of Advanced Education as soon as possible. Mr. Meahan can be reached by email at email@example.com or by phone at 902-424-7154.
