Major MAJOR IN PATHOLOGY
Faculty of Science/Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry; including BMSc and Neuroscience - Pathology and Laboratory Medicine



This Major can be completed only in combination with another Major (double Majors) in a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degree. See BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES (BMSc) PROGRAM for more information.

Admission Requirements


Admission to this Major module occurs in Year 3 and requires admission to Double Majors in a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degree. Students will usually complete MEDICAL SCIENCES FIRST ENTRY (Medical Sciences 1 and 2) prior to admission to the BMSc Program.

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 courses below must each be completed with a minimum mark of 60% prior to admission to the Major module in Year 3. These courses will also be used towards the module requirements. See ADMISSION TO THE BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES (BMSc) PROGRAM and MODULES OFFERED IN THE BMSc PROGRAM for additional requirements (averages, course load, etc.):

0.5 course: Biochemistry 2280A.
0.5 course: Biology 2382A/B.
0.5 course from: Biology 2244A/B, Chemistry 2213A/B, Statistical Sciences 2244A/B.
