Major in Medical Cell Biology

A degree containing this module normally requires 4 years for completion. When combined with one of the following Majors, this module leads to a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degree: Biochemistry, Interdisciplinary Medical Sciences (IMS) or Medical Sciences (see note below), Medical Biophysics, Microbiology and Immunology, Pharmacology or Physiology. See Bachelor Of Medical Sciences (BMSc) Program for more information.

Note: Students registered in Year 3 or 4 of a BMSc degree in 2013/14 will register in a Major in Medical Sciences, whereas students registered in Year 2 of a BMSc degree in 2013/14 will register in a Major in IMS.

Students entering Year 2 in September 2013 should see the Admission Requirements in the 2012/13 Academic Calendar.

Students pursuing a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degree will not be admitted to Year 2 of the Major beginning in September, 2014. Students in other degrees will continue to be admitted to the Major in Year 2.

Admission Requirements for students pursuing this Major module in a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degree, effective September 1, 2015 (for students admitted to Year 1 in September, 2013):

Admission to this Major module occurs in Year 3 and requires admission to Year 3 of the Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) Program. Students will usually complete the Medical Sciences First Entry Program (Medical Sciences 1 and 2) prior to admission to a BMSc degree.

The 1000-level half courses listed below must each be completed with a mark of at least 60%:

* 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 be completed with a minimum mark of 60% in each 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.).

Admission Requirements for students pursuing this Major module in a degree other than a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degree:

Completion of first-year requirements, including a mark of at least 60% in each of the 3.0 (full or half) principal courses below:

The following must be completed by the end of second year, with a mark of at least 60% in each half course:

* 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.
