Bachelor of Science in Medicine

Comprehensive Course Process Overview

The B.Sc. (Med.) program gives medical students an opportunity to engage in original research, either in basic medical sciences or clinical or community health, under the supervision of a member of the Medical Faculty (or a faculty member from an approved institution). The aim of the program is to provide medical students with the opportunity to:

·       Develop skills at research design, hypothesis testing, critical evaluation of data and effective communication of results.

·       Discover whether they would like to continue as a researcher, either through continuing into a formal graduate program during or after medical school or as a clinician researcher/scientist. 

·       Clinical Component: As part of the BSc (Med) Program, you may choose to partake in a clinical setting/exposure as well. If you so choose; you are entitled to a minimum of 48 hours of in-clinic exposure over the 2 summers of the BSc (Med) Program. The clinical setting is to be agreed upon by both the trainee and supervisor. The clinical exposure may be of greater than 48 hours for the entire program, but must not interfere with the proposed research project. For trainees working with basic scientists who do not provide clinical care, a clinical setting with a clinical colleague with a similar area of study can be organized, or, alternatively, the trainee can contact a representative from the BSc (Med) Program for additional guidance on possible clinic settings.

If you are planning on applying to UGME to have the in-clinic (clinical exposure) hours you have acquired within the BSc.(MED) Program credited to the UGME Summer Early Exposure Program; please go to the following website for more information.
