Our Arts & Sciences Pathobiology Specialist program is a Type 3 Collaborative Life Science Program.
Admission to our program requires both a request from the student and acceptance into the program by the Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathobiology.
This is a restricted enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students.
Eligibility is competitive and based on your marks in the 3.0 credit required first-year courses.
The following courses must be completed:
- BIO120H1 and BIO130H1
- (CHM135H1 and CHM136H1) / CHM151Y1
- (MAT135H1 and MAT136H1) / MAT137Y1 / MAT157Y1
The underlying numeric final mark in each of your courses required for program enrolment will be used by the relevant academic unit to determine your eligibility.
Applications from students lacking numerical grades in one or more of the specified prerequisites, or students applying in their second or later years, may be considered on the basis of their entire academic record and the availability of space in the program.
Please contact the department directly at email@example.com, specify which program you would like to be considered for, and provide your unofficial transcript.
