The Bachelor of Science with Honours in Translational and Molecular Medicine (TMM) is a unique collaborative effort between the Faculty of Medicine’s researchers and its affiliated institutes. The program integrates theoretical and practical courses with e-learning, offering students an enriching educational environment and exposing them to innovative research throughout their studies. TMM offers the largest number of advanced laboratories for an undergraduate program in Canada. Students are taught by both basic scientists and clinicians, providing them with the skillsets required to perform cutting-edge biomedical research.
Three program options are available: Honours in Translational and Molecular Medicine, Integrated Honours BSc/MSc in Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Medicine, Microbiology and Immunology or Neuroscience, and the Integrated BSc/PhD program in the same disciplines.
For the Integrated Honours BSc/PhD, all the requirements for admission for the Honours BSc in Translational and Molecular Medicine must be met along with minimum admission average of 8.0 (CGPA) and an admission interview.
The French immersion stream is available with this program.
Basis of admission: two full years of study in a BSc. (60 units)
