    This program is offered by both the Faculty of Science and the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry. It presents all of the basic medical sciences content of all of Western’s BMSc degrees, including Physiology, Pharmacology, Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology, Medical Biophysics, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Biochemistry, Anatomy and Cell Biology.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning And Teaching

    Western’s BMSc programs have many different learning methods. Of course you’ll take formal lecture classes and engage in practical and laboratory skills sessions. You’ll take part in interactive seminars and even smaller tutorial sessions.   

    You’ll also study one of 20 separate honours specialisations in great depth. These are the only way to access the 400-level capstone modules which will define the first few years of your career ir your graduate school prospects.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree program is designed to give you the academic and practical skills that a career in the Medical Science field demands. Many careers in this field will require a Master’s or even PhD degree, and as a result many recent graduates have taken further training in Optometry, Physical Therapy, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, Medicine or Dentistry. Others have gone directly or indirectly into careers involving the law, business, teaching, or fields like pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and biosafety regulation.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 4 year BMSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have graduated from a Canadian or overseas secondary school, though there are many other options.

    All classes are taught in English unless otherwise indicated, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
