What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Medical Science Bachelor of Arts in International Studies is a combined degree that integrates medical science with the immersion in another language and culture. The medical science program is designed to educate and train graduates for careers in medical and health-related sciences. It aims to produce medical scientists with highly adaptable, practical scientific skills and a thorough grounding in the structure and function of the human body and in disease processes at the cellular, whole organ and behavioral level.

The combination of medical science and international studies aims to produce graduates with an increased awareness of the international contexts of health and who are well prepared to pursue global health related professional careers.

Multinational pharmaceutical companies look to medical science graduates to work in drug registration, clinical trials coordination, as technical or marketing representatives and as policy analysts.

For international students, mid-year (July/August) intake may be considered on a case-by-case basis by the faculty.
