Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Medicine
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Medical Scientist (MS, PhD)
Description Major advances in biomedical research are now being made in an environment where basic scientists and research-trained clinicians are interacting. There is a critical need to increase the number of such trained physicians locally, regionally, and nationally. This program is designed for persons who will become clinicians, but who plan careers as clinician scientists. The program allows the MD, DDS or DVM (or equivalent) graduate to concentrate primarily on thesis research in Medical Research and bridge the gap between clinical practice and medical research. In addition, the program offers training in clinical research, which is not otherwise formally offered at this University.

Requirements
Test Scores:
  • Test of English as a Foreign Language (Internet Based) [min. 92] or Michigan English Language Assessment Battery [min. 85] or CanTEST [min. 4.5] or Test of English as a Foreign Language (Paper Based) [min. 580] or International English Language Testing System (academic or immigration) [min. 7]

English is the language of study at Dalhousie; therefore all applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate their capacity to pursue a graduate-level program in English before admission. Dalhousie accepts a number of different English proficiency test scores: Internet-based TOEFL- 92; Written TOEFL - 580; MELAB - 85; IELTS - 7; CanTest - 4.5 (with no band score lower than 4.0); or CAEL 70 with no band score lower than 60. Alternatively, a prospective student may enroll in the ESL program with the Dalhousie College of Continuing Education and obtain a grade of at least A- on the final stage of that training. The language competency test may be waived if the applicant has completed a degree at a recognized university where the language of instruction is English. The claims must be verified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Test scores are valid for two years from the date the test was written.

Additional Admission Requirements:
  • Letter(s) of Reference
Applicants are required to submit two academic reference letters, either through the electronic reference system in the online application or by paper. Please visit the website for complete details.
