Specialization SPECIALIZATION IN PHARMACOLOGY
Faculty of Science/Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry; including BMSc and Neuroscience - Physiology and Pharmacology



This module leads to a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degree. See BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES (BMSc) PROGRAM for more information.

Admission Requirements


Admission to this 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 Specialization module.

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 Chemistry 1302A/B.
0.5 course from: Calculus 1000A/B, Calculus 1500A/B.
0.5 course from: Applied Mathematics 1201A/B, Calculus 1301A/B or Calculus 1501A/B, Mathematics 1600A/B.
