MODULES OFFERED IN THE BMSc PROGRAM

The Honors Specialization, Specialization and Double Major modules that lead to graduation with BMSc degrees are collectively referred to as the BMSc Program.

Honors Specialization Modules:

Admission to the BMSc Program does not guarantee admission to a particular Honors Specialization module as each of these modules has a limited capacity.

Year 3:
Once admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program [see ADMISSION TO THE BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES (BMSc) PROGRAM], admission to each Honors Specialization module requires completion of ALL of the courses listed in the Admission Requirements for the Honors Specialization module to which the student applies and is based on the average obtained on ALL the 2000-level courses listed in the Admission Requirements. If the Admission Requirements list 3.5 or more 2000-level courses, admission is based on the average obtained on the best 3.0 of these 2000-level courses. A minimum mark of 60% must be achieved in any additional modular course(s) completed.
Students satisfying the conditions for assured admission to Year 3 of the BMSc Program from MEDICAL SCIENCES FIRST ENTRY (Medical Sciences 2) will receive priority placement in the Honors Specialization modules in Year 3. Once these students have been adjudicated into the Honors Specialization modules, students admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program from the competitive pool will be adjudicated into the remaining spaces in the Honors Specialization modules.

Year 4:
Admission to an Honors Specialization module in Year 4 requires a minimum Weighted Average of 75% and completion of ALL of the courses indicated in the Weighted Average Chart below. Admission is not guaranteed as each of these modules has a limited capacity. Any student in Year 3 BMSc with the appropriate courses can apply for admission to Year 4 of any Honors Specialization module.

Notes:

1. Some courses in the Weighted Average Chart include a mark/average requirement in their prerequisite(s). See UNDERGRADUATE COURSE INFORMATION.

2. Information about the maximum capacity of each Honors Specialization module and the minimum Weighted Average required for admission to each Honors Specialization module will be made available on the BMSc website: www.schulich.uwo.ca/bmsc


Double Majors:

Students admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program [see ADMISSION TO THE BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES (BMSc) PROGRAM] are eligible to register in Double Major modules provided they have completed all of the 2000-level courses listed in the Admission Requirements for both Major modules and have the prerequisites to register in the 3000-level courses required in the module (some 3000-level courses include mark/average requirements in their prerequisites). A minimum mark of 60% must be achieved in any additional modular course(s) completed. For more information about completing the 2000-level Admission Requirements for each Major + Major combination available in the BMSc Program, see the BMSc website.

Specialization Modules:

Students admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program [see ADMISSION TO THE BACHELOR OF MEDICAL SCIENCES (BMSc) PROGRAM] are eligible to register in Specialization modules provided they have completed all of the 2000-level courses listed in the Admission Requirements for the Specialization module and have the prerequisites to register in the 3000-level courses required in the module (some 3000-level courses include mark/average requirements in their prerequisites).
