Program updates and policies:
MED II Summer Research Program extended for one additional year. The last class will be the 2017 offering.
B.Sc.(Med.) stipend to increase from $5,000 per term to $7,500 per term starting 2017 term
MED II Summer Program will be discontinued at the completion of the 2016 offering.
Term Dates - The start date for B.Sc.(Med.) students will start 1 week later to accommodate the Undergraduate Medical Curriculum. Start dates are advertised and posted on the website annually. Term will not be 12 weeks during the summer recess.
Clinical Component: As part of the BSc.(Med.) Program, all students are entitled to 48 hours of clinical exposure over the 2 summers of the B.Sc.(Med.) Program. The clinical exposure is to be agreed upon by both trainees and supervisors. The clinical exposure can 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 exposure with a clinical colleague with a similar area of study can be organized, or, alternatively, the trainee can contact a representative from the B.Sc.(Med.) Program for additional guidance on clinical exposures.
Supervisors may now supervise more than one B.Sc.(Med.) or MED II student at the same time, based on the following;
1. You may supervise one first-year and one second-year B.Sc.(Med.) at the same time.
2. You may supervise one B.Sc.(Med.) (either first or second year) and one MED II student at the same time
3. You may NOT supervise 2 MED II's or 2 'same term' B.Sc.(Med.) students at the same time.
All students/projects must be supervised by a primary and secondary supervisor. Please ensure you have reported the name of the primary supervisor and co-supervisor to the program office.
