Registration for compulsory comprehensives (BIOC 701, 702, 703)

All students entering or registered in the Ph.D. program must register for the comprehensive courses (see table below). Registration for these courses is not initiated until instructed by the Student Affairs Officer (Christine Laberge).

Doctoral program

Our doctoral program aims to produce scientists who will be capable of solving biochemical and health-related problems and go on to hold leadership positions in both the public and private sectors.

Requirements for admission

Students who hold an M.Sc. degree from another recognized university (or from another McGill Department) may be considered for admission at the Ph.D. level. These candidates register at the Ph.D. 2 level.
