  • It is a broad-based curriculum that can provide the student with requirements to pursue medical school, dental school, veterinary school, advanced graduate education, or enter a career in allied health sciences, such as public health and health care administration, clinical research, or in non-research positions including managerial and biotechnology patent law, teaching, and medical writing.

Programme Structure

  • The successful applicant to the Medical Science Research Track will have excelled in the requirements for the Medical Science discipline and expressed a strong interest in education and/or research within a specific field.
