The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology offers excellent research training programs that address the nature and molecular mechanisms of human disease. Over 130 faculty members, on campus and at university teaching hospitals, conduct studies and teach courses related to pathobiology and supervise students in the PhD and MSc programs. The department provides a unique academic research environment that encourages interaction among clinicians, scientists, and student trainees. Students can gain an excellent understanding of how discoveries in basic and clinical research settings lead to more effective strategies in the treatment of human illness.
The program emphasizes:
Bone and Matrix Pathobiology
Vascular and Cardiovascular Pathobiology
Immunopathology, Lymphatics, and Transplantation
Neuropathobiology and Endocrine Disorders
Microbiology and Infectious Disease
You only need to take one of these language tests:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test
The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
Candidates for this degree must have completed, or be about to complete one of the following:
A minimum A- average over the final two years of undergraduate study is needed.
Strong performance is also important in second year Life Science-based courses including molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, genetics, and physiology. It is expected in years three and four that coursework in Life Science subjects is at an advanced level (i.e. appropriate number of 300- & 400-series courses or equivalent). Research experience is an asset.
