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



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

Admission Requirements


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 Chemistry 1302A/B.
0.5 course from: Calculus 1000A/B, Calculus 1500A/B.
0.5 course from: Applied Mathematics 1201A/B, Calculus 1301A/B, Calculus 1501A/B, Mathematics 1600A/B.
0.5 course from: Physics 1028A/B, Physics 1301A/B, Physics 1501A/B.
0.5 course from: Physics 1029A/B, Physics 1302A/B, Physics 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 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.

0.5 course: Biochemistry 2280A.
1.5 courses: Biology 2290F/G, Biology 2382A/B, Biology 2581A/B.
0.5 course: Chemistry 2213A/B.
0.5 course from: Biology 2244A/B or Statistical Sciences 2244A/B.

1.5 courses: Physiology and Pharmacology 4980E (Seminar and Research Project = 1.5 courses) or the former Pharmacology 4980E.
1.5 additional courses in Pharmacology at the 4000-level.

Notes:

1. A minimum average of 75% in the Fall/Winter of the most recent academic year is included in the prerequisite for Physiology and Pharmacology 3000E. The former Pharmacology 3580Z may be used in place of Physiology and Pharmacology 3000E. The module will consist of 9.5 courses if the former Pharmacology 3580Z is included in the module.
2. If Pathology 3500 is included in the module, then the total number of courses required for the module increases by 0.5 course.
3. For the specific courses that must be completed before Year 4, see the Weighted Average Chart (MODULES OFFERED IN THE BMSc PROGRAM).
