Admission Requirements

Admission to the graduate program is based on an evaluation by the Faculty of Graduate Studies, the departmental Graduate Studies Committtee, and on acceptance by a research supervior.

MSc in Pathology

Preference for admission to the MSc program is given to applicants with an Hounours B.Sc. (or equivalent) and is based on the applicant's potential for research experience. Candidates with the MD degree may be admitted.

Minimum requirements will normally include a minimum average of A- in the last year of studies and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.7. Exceptions will be made in special cases, and there are provisions for "special" and "qualifying year" students.

PhD in Pathology

Pre-requisite for acceptance into this program is an MSc degree in Pathology or other Life Science field or an MD degree with research experience.

Students entering from a B.Sc. would first enter the MSc program but could transfer to the PhD program before completing the MSc provided that the student had made satisfactory progress and the project had sufficient scope and depth.
