Course Listing

The Medical Sciences Graduate Program Committee (MSGPC) has the document entitled "Outline of Responsibilities" which defines the Program Requirements for the Medical Sciences program.

For PhD students entering after a BSc degree, the minimum course requirement is 12 course weights of graded graduate courses. For students entering the PhD program after completing a MSc degree, the minimum course requirement is 6 course weights of graded graduate courses. MSc students are required to take 9 credits of graded, graduate level courses.
