Students must be admitted to the BMSc Program in Year 3 to be eligible to progress to the BMSc Program in Year 4.

Although admission to the BMSc Program in Year 3 is assured for students in Medical Sciences 2 who satisfy certain conditions, it is anticipated that space will be available for additional students. These students will comprise the “competitive pool”.
