Honours Specialization HONOURS SPECIALIZATION IN MEDICAL BIOPHYSICS (Clinical Physics Concentration)*
Faculty of Science/Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry; including BMSc and Neuroscience - Medical Biophysics

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

Admission Requirements

Admission to this Honours 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 Honours Specialization module. Enrolment in this Honours 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 or Calculus 1500A/B
0.5 course from: Calculus 1301A/B or Calculus 1501A/B
0.5 course from: Physics 1028A/B**, Physics 1301A/B, Physics 1501A/B (one of Physics 1301A/B or Physics 1501A/B is preferred)
0.5 course from: Physics 1029A/B**, Physics 1302A/B, Physics 1502A/B (one of Physics 1302A/B or Physics 1502A/B is preferred)

* 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.

**A minimum mark of 80% in each of Physics 1028A/B and Physics 1029A/B is required as a prerequisite for Physics 2101A/B, Physics 2102A/B and Physics 2110A/B.

The courses below must be completed with a minimum mark of 60% in each prior to admission to the Honours Specialization module in Year 3. These 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 Honours Specialization modules, including the Weighted Average Chart.

0.5 course from: Calculus 2302A/B, Calculus 2502A/B.
0.5 course from: Calculus 2303A/B, Calculus 2503A/B.
0.5 course: Mathematics 1600A/B.
1.5 courses: Physics 2101A/B, Physics 2102A/B, Physics 2110A/B.
