Dr. Candace Gibson, PhD, CHIM
Vice Dean (Acting), Basic Medical Sciences
Professor, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine

Welcome to the Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) Program and the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry!  I hope the next two years of your undergraduate career bring excitement and an enhanced passion for learning. Your Year 3 experience will provide you with a strong foundation in the basic medical sciences, including hands-on experience in one (or two) of our discipline-specific or interdisciplinary laboratory courses. In Year 4 you will be able to integrate this knowledge into advanced lecture courses and, in the Honours Specialization modules, you will have the opportunity to complete a research project or advanced interdisciplinary laboratory. I encourage you to continue to work hard to achieve the level of success needed to pursue your future goals.
