Effective September 1, 2014, admission to the Honors Specialization in Clinical Biochemistry will be discontinued and, that effective September 1, 2018, the module will be withdrawn. Students enrolled prior to September 1, 2014 will be permitted to continue with the understanding that they must complete the requirements prior to September 1, 2018.
This module leads to an Honors Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degree. See BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES (BMSc) PROGRAM for more information.
Students entering Years 3 and 4 in September 2014 should see the Admission Requirements in the 2012/13 Academic Calendar and the Module requirements below.
Admission Requirements(for students admitted to Year 1 in September, 2013 and onward):
Admission to this Honors Specialization module occurs in Year 3 and requires admission to Year 3 of the Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) Program. Students will usually complete MEDICAL SCIENCES FIRST ENTRY (Medical Sciences 1 and 2) prior to admission to the Honors Specialization module. Enrolment in this Honors Specialization module is limited and meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.
The 1000-level half courses listed below must each be completed with a mark of at least 60%:
1.0 course: Biology 1001A* and Biology 1002B*
1.0 course: Chemistry 1301A/B and 1302A/B
0.5 course from: Calculus 1000A/B, 1500A/B, the former Calculus 1100A/B
0.5 course from: Applied Mathematics 1201A/B, Calculus 1301A/B, 1501A/B, Mathematics 1600A/B.
0.5 course from: Physics 1028A/B, 1301A/B, 1501A/B
0.5 course from: Physics 1029A/B, 1302A/B, 1502A/B.
* Biology 1201A with a mark of at least 70% may be used in place of Biology 1001A, and Biology 1202B with a mark of at least 70% may be used in place of Biology 1002B.
The 2000-level courses below must be completed with a minimum mark of 60% in each (unless otherwise indicated) prior to admission to the Honors Specialization module in Year 3. These 2000-level courses will also be used towards the Module requirements. See ADMISSION TO THE BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES (BMSc) PROGRAM for additional average, course load requirements, etc. and MODULES OFFERED IN THE BMSc PROGRAM for specific information about Honors Specialization modules, including the Weighted Average Chart.
