*With these 5.0 courses, the following 'discipline requirement' must be satisfied: 2.0 courses must be chosen from one of the Basic Medical Science disciplines (see below); 2.0 courses must be chosen from either a second Basic Medical Science discipline or a combination of Basic Medical Science disciplines other than the first discipline chosen; and the remaining 1.0 course may be chosen from any of the Basic Medical Science disciplines, including disciplines already selected.
Basic Medical Science Disciplines:
Anatomy and Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Epidemiology and Biostatistics,
Medical Biophysics, Microbiology and Immunology, Pathology, Pharmacology, and Physiology
1. In addition to Biology 2290F/G and Chemistry 2213A/B, one half course with a laboratory component chosen from those courses available in the module must be completed prior to entering the final year of the module.
2. History of Science courses may not be included in the Honors
Specialization module. These courses may be taken as optional courses, only.
Students are advised to consult with the Medical Sciences counsellor prior to selecting 3000- and 4000-level courses to ensure that appropriate prerequisite courses have been selected.
Basic Medical Science Disciplines:
Anatomy and Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Medical Biophysics, Microbiology and Immunology, Pathology, Pharmacology, and Physiology
