This module leads to an Honours Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degree. See BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES (BMSc) PROGRAM for more information.
Admission to this Honours Specialization module occurs in Year 3 and requires admission to Year 3 of the Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) Program. Students will usually complete MEDICAL SCIENCES FIRST ENTRY (Medical Sciences 1 and 2) prior to admission to the Honours Specialization module. Enrolment in this Honours Specialization module is limited and meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.
The 1000-level half courses listed below must each be completed with a mark of at least 60%:
1.0 courses: Biology 1001A* and Biology 1002B*.
1.0 courses: Chemistry 1301A/B and Chemistry 1302A/B.
0.5 course from: Calculus 1000A/B, Calculus 1500A/B.
0.5 course from: Calculus 1301A/B, Calculus 1501A/B.
0.5 course from: Physics 1201A/B, Physics 1501A/B, the former Physics 1028A/B, the former Physics 1301A/B.
0.5 course from: Physics 1202A/B, Physics 1502A/B, the former Physics 1029A/B, the former Physics 1302A/B.
The 2000-level courses below must be completed with a minimum mark of 60% in each prior to admission to the Honours Specialization module in Year 3. These 2000-level courses will also be used towards the Module requirements. See ADMISSION TO THE BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES (BMSc) PROGRAM for additional average, course load requirements, etc. and MODULES OFFERED IN THE BMSc PROGRAM for specific information about Honours Specialization modules, including the Weighted Average Chart.
Note: students are encouraged to take Medical Biophysics 2500A/B in second year if they want an introduction to the discipline of Medical Biophysics or are interested in learning how biophysics concepts are applied in translational health research.
