How our program works

The Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) Program, offered jointly by the Faculty of Science and the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, is designed for students interested in studying the basic medical sciences at an advanced level. Students interested in this program should apply to Medical Sciences First Entry. Students admitted to Medical Sciences First Entry are assured admission to Year 3 BMSc provided they satisfy certain conditions in Medical Sciences 1 and 2. Learn more.

Students interested in the undergraduate program in Neuroscience (BSc) in Year 2 will normally apply via Medical Sciences First Entry, however, any student who satisfies the first-year admission requirements can be considered for admission. Biology, Chemistry, Math, Physics and Psychology are required courses in Year 1. Learn more.
