Description:The Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degrees are four-year undergraduate degrees offered jointly by the Faculty of Science and the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. You are registered as a Medical Sciences student in Years 1 and 2, and apply to the BMSc Program when you enter Year 3. In the BMSc program, you will study basic medical sciences and focus on all aspects of biology that define and influence the human condition. Emphasis is placed on understanding the normal human condition, mechanisms of current treatment and the search for cures.

In Microbiology and Immunology, you'll discover how the immune system protects us from infections micro-organisms and cancer cells to maintain our health, yet can cause disorders like autoimmune diseases and allergies. You'll learn about antimicrobial therapies, vaccine strategies/challenges and lab techniques used to identify bacteria and measure immune health. With the Microbiology and Immunology with Pathology stream, you'll gain a more comprehensive understanding of the pathogenesis of human diseases.

As a student in Medical Sciences, you'll also have the opportunity to apply to the Science Internship Program. This program facilitates paid and career-related placements so you can work full-time for 8 to 16 months, following the third year of study. As with a traditional co-op degree, your graduation will be delayed by one year while you acquire marketable skills and work experience. Internship placement opportunities are available in the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors - so don't miss out! Click here for more information.
