DescriptionThe 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.

Medical Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that brings together computer sciences, the medical sciences and health care to support all aspects of safe, efficient and effective health services (e.g., planning, research, development, organization, provision, evaluation of services). As a student, you will combine foundational courses in both the medical sciences (such as understanding the biochemistry and pathophysiology of disease) and computer sciences (in algorithms, data structures, databases, computer networks and human-computer interaction) to use computational methods to solve problems in biomedical sciences.
