*With these 5.0 courses, the following 'discipline requirement' must be satisfied:
2.0 courses from: one of the Basic Medical Science disciplines (e.g. 2.0 courses in Physiology);
2.0 courses from: either a second Basic Medical Science discipline or a combination of Basic Medical Science disciplines other than the first discipline chosen (e.g. 2.0 courses in Microbiology and Immunology, or 1.0 course in Microbiology and Immunology plus 0.5 course in Pathology and 0.5 course in Medical Biophysics); and
1.0 course from: any of the Basic Medical Science disciplines, including disciplines already selected (e.g. 1.0 additional course in Physiology, or 0.5 course in Biochemistry and 0.5 course in Pharmacology).
Basic Medical Science Disciplines:
Anatomy and Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Medical Biophysics, Microbiology and Immunology, Pathology, Pharmacology, and Physiology. History of Science courses may not be used to satisfy the ‘discipline requirement'.
Notes for the Module:
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 (e.g. Chemistry 2223B or Microbiology and Immunology 2100A) must be completed prior to entering the final year of the module.
2. When selecting courses for Years 3 and 4, students are advised to check the Undergraduate Course Information in the Academic Calendar for prerequisite information, and the Constraint charts under "Courses" on the BMSc website (www.uwo.bmsc) for information about priority/restricted access to courses.
