Interprovincial Training Programs

Some specialized training is not available in Saskatchewan. That's why Saskatchewan has agreements with other provinces to reserve seats for qualified Saskatchewan students in high-demand health science training programs.

Interprovincial training programs (IPAs) provide training for priority health sciences occupations needed to meet critical health care needs in Saskatchewan and for which employment vacancies exist across the province. Students in these programs may be eligible for student aid and will complete the clinical portions of their programs at home in Saskatchewan.

More seats are being added for Saskatchewan students to study at institutions outside the province in specialized programs not available in Saskatchewan. For the first time, seats will also be reserved for Saskatchewan students in Speech Language Pathology and Environmental Public Health.

Expanded and new programs are listed in the table below.
