What will I learn?

All health and health-related professional programs require a university degree and the Medical Sciences degree is specifically designed to prepare students to be highly successful in these follow-on programs. However, it is also very good preparation for the student interested in a biomedical research career.

In the Medical Sciences program, you will take a comprehensive range of coursework in fundamental concepts of biology, critical thinking, leadership and professional conduct, psychology, global and cultural competence and biomedical specialty areas. There is scope for hands-on research experience and internships within the local community that could be valuable assets in future professional programs.

This program is excellent preparation for a health professional program such as medicine, dentistry, ophthalmology or radiology. The Medical Sciences degree would be a terrific launch point for the student wanting to enter biomedical graduate school.
