Description:

The Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degrees are four-year undergraduate degrees offered jointly by the Faculty of Science and the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. You are registered as a Medical Sciences student in Years 1 and 2, and apply to the BMSc Program when you enter Year 3. In the BMSc program, you will study basic medical sciences and focus on all aspects of biology that define and influence the human condition. Emphasis is placed on understanding the normal human condition, mechanisms of current treatment and the search for cures.

Medical Biophysics and Biochemistry will equip you with the knowledge necessary to understand the quantitative aspects of molecular and cellular systems, including the interactions between DNA, RNA and proteins, and the physical laws that govern these interactions. You will learn scientific principles and experimental techniques, including the application of imaging systems, used to understand and quantify these interactions to answer biological problems at the cell and molecular levels.
