*You must have the prerequisites for any course you take. We will not override prerequisites in order to allow you to progress more quickly.
• Check and consult the Undergraduate Calendar for former course numbers, other equivalents and for prerequisites.
• Changes have been made to the list of required courses as given in the Undergraduate Calendar to accommodate the requirements of the University of Manitoba’s pre-med professional preparation: CHEM 1310 replaces CHEM 1320 ; CHEM 2360 and CHEM 2370 replace CHEM 2770 and CHEM 2780. Applicants must have a minimum of 6 credit hours in Biochemistry with a minimum grade of “C” in each course. At the University of Manitoba this requirement can be fulfilled by taking CHEM/MBIO 2360 and CHEM/MBIO 2370.
PRE-REQUISTE COURSES FOR CHEM/ MBIO 2360 AND CHEM/ MBIO 2370
Biological Sciences BIOL1020, BIOL 1030
Chemistry CHEM 1300, CHEM 1310, CHEM 2210* *(pre-requisite for CHEM/MBIO 2370)
• HNS (department) electives are the student’s choice. To graduate, the student MUST include 15 credits of department electives (listed below).
• Courses designated as electives will fulfill the 24 credit hours of electives listed as degree requirements in the Undergraduate Calendar. The courses listed as electives meet the requirements of the University of Manitoba’s pre-med professional preparation.
The following courses are recommended for MCAT preparation. These courses can be used to fulfill the 24 credit hours of free electives:
Physics PHYS 1020 and PHYS 1030 OR PHYS 1050 and PHYS 1070
Chemistry CHEM 2220
English Any Written English Course
Microbiology MBIO 1010, MBIO 2020
Biological Sciences BIOL 1410, BIOL 2500, BIOL 2410, and BIOL 2420
The Faculty of Medicine will no longer require applicants to have specific English or French literature courses as a pre-requisite to Medicine. We have, as a result, increased the Humanities/Social Science Requirement. As a result of change in the entrance requirement applicants must now have completed at least 18 credit hours in the humanities/social sciences. Applicants who complete a 4 Year Major or Honours program may waive up to 12 credit hours of the humanities/social sciences prerequisite. Applicants with a BSc (General) or BA (General) must complete the full requirement. The Faculty of Arts describes the recognized subject fields for humanity and social science requirements in section 5.1.1 of the Undergraduate Calendar.
This information is to be used only as a guide and is NOT a substitute for the Faculty of Medicine Applicant Information Bulletin. It is the responsibility of all pre-Medicine students to obtain and read the current Applicant Information Bulletin when it is available from www.umanitoba.ca/medicine/admissions. It is the student's responsibility to satisfy the requirements for entry to Medicine and for the Bachelor degree of choice.
