Courses - A & S Specialist Program in Pathobiology
First and Second Year: Students take foundation courses similar to any program in the basic medical sciences, including biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics.
Third Year: Pathobiology students begin an in-depth study of disease mechanisms while taking additional courses in cell and molecular biology, anatomy and physiology, immunology, and infectious disease.
Fourth Year: Fourth year offers a range of specialized courses in areas including cancer, infection, cardiovascular disease and neurodegenerative disease. During this final year, each student carries out a research project under the personal supervision of one of our faculty members.
Requirements: The Specialist program requires 13.5 full courses or their equivalent, including at least four 400-series courses.
