     How our program works
     The Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) program, offered
     jointly by the Faculty of Science and the Schulich School of
     Medicine & Dentistry, is designed for students interested
     in studying the medical science disciplines at an advanced
     level. Students interested in this program should apply to
     Medical Sciences. Students admitted to Medical Sciences
     are assured admission to Year 3 BMSc provided they
     satisfy certain conditions in Medical Sciences 1 and 2.
