Applicants are required to have a Master's degree with an academic standing equivalent to at least a McMaster B+ in previous academic work. The School of Graduate Studies at McMaster requires that visa applicants have a first class academic record. Degrees and grades from foreign universities are evaluated in terms of their equivalency to those from McMaster. In exceptional cases, applicants may be admitted directly from a bachelor's 4-year honours degree. Such applicants must have a previous academic record showing sufficient promise, including proven research experience and an A average. Applicants who obtained their MD as a second degree may qualify for direct entry to the PhD stream, provided their first degree is such that it would qualify them for entry into the M.Sc. stream. Students, enrolled in the Medical Sciences M.Sc. Program for at least a year, may seek to transfer to the PhD through presentation of the work they have accomplished and a research proposal to a faculty committee.
