September 1, 2013, admission to this module is discontinued. Students
enrolled prior to September 1, 2013 will be permitted to continue with
the understanding that they must complete the requirements prior to
September 1, 2017; and, that effective September 1, 2017, the module
will be withdrawn.
Students entering Year 2 of a BMSc degree in September 2013 will register in an Honors Specialization in Interdisciplinary Medical Sciences (IMS).
Enrollment in this module requires registration in the BMSc program and is limited. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee that students wishing to enter or progress in this module will be offered enrollment. See BMSc PROGRAM for detailed information.
