Proof of Vaccination on Campus
By order of the BC Provincial Health Officer, proof of vaccination is now required in British Columbia for those ages 12+ attending certain businesses and events.
What kind of events are covered by this order? Indoor ticketed events (concerts or sports events), restaurant dining, gyms, organized gatherings and recreational classes. For a full list of events, see here.
For Douglas College students, that means that some of our activities now require proof of vaccination of at least one dose, and full vaccination (two doses) from October 24, 2021 onwards.

- Academic classes and other educational activities required for those classes

- Access to service areas on campus (e.g. DC International office, Career Center, Counselling, etc.)
- On-campus cafeterias

Featured Program: Health Information Management PBD
Health care and social assistance industry is one British Columbia’s largest employers. This industry is known for lowest unemployment rate while being relatively immune from economic fluctuations.
Douglas College offers a variety of programs in the health care field, to give our graduates a competitive edge in the job market – a BA in Applied Psychology as well as Hearing Instrument Practitioner, Dispensing Opticianry and Therapeutic Recreation Diplomas, just to name a few.
Health care industry depends on the professionals who collect and analyze information, improving the quality of care in Canada. Emergency wait times, vaccination rates and immunization records are just a few examples of where health data is collected!
The 2-year Post-Baccalaureate diploma in Health Information Management offered at DC Coquitlam Campus is unique for British Columbia allowing graduates to apply for positions in health data management, quality management, data analytics, financial management and risk management with a median wage of $32/hour. During the program, Douglas students put their skills to test with four practicums in a hospital setting, as well as job-shadow healthcare professionals.
