Aboriginal Health and Community Administration Program

Developed in consultation with Indigenous communities by the UBC Institute for Aboriginal Health and UBC Extended Learning, this award-winning certificate program is designed to help Indigenous communities increase their capacity to deliver services, coordinate programs and promote the health of their people. The program expands its focus beyond health delivery to include environmental and other community health concerns.

The UBC Certificate in Aboriginal Health and Community Administration (AHCAP) is a 1-year program consisting of five residency weekends at UBC (usually once every two months) with online assignments and discussions completed in between by students from their home communities. The program’s format features peer learning through online discussions to develop team-building skills, shared learning opportunities and a supportive environment. The instructors are Indigenous health professionals with extensive experience working in the field.

This year, due to the generosity of a private donor, we are pleased to be able to offer a limited number of bursaries to cover the cost of tuition so that more students are able to attend the program and build health leadership capacity in our communities.
