Description The Department of Medical Science graduate program offers the degrees of M.Sc. and Ph.D. It employs an interdisciplinary approach to graduate education and is only one of seven research programs available to graduate students through the Faculty of Medicine. Graduate supervision is organized under the geographical context of multidisciplinary groups of clinical and basic science investigators sharing broad research interests. Rather than studying in a classical discipline such as anatomy or biochemistry, students have the opportunity to become broadly trained in a specific area of research (e.g. physiology, medical education, immunology, etc). Yet, students also have the opportunity to become sufficiently trained in basic disciplines so that they may be identified as a biochemist or molecular biologist by employers who prefer more discipline oriented labels. This was the first graduate training program offered by the Faculty of Medicine and has been in existence for over 25 years. Graduates of this program have been very successful in obtaining postdoctoral positions leading to faculty positions at top universities in Canada and abroad.
