Curriculum

Please note that the curriculum for the Preparatory Program (DENT-P) is currently being revised.

Students accepted into the Dent-P Program complete their first full year of study in the Faculty of Science. During this year, each student must take courses totalling 30 credits.

Following the successful completion of that year, students will proceed into the DMD Program.

 

A - OBLIGATORY COURSES (12 credits)

You are required to register in and achieve a minimum grade of B in the following:

BIOL 200 Molecular Biology 3 Credits 

BIOL 201 Cell Biology & Metabolism 3 Credits 

PHGY 209 Mammalian Physiology 1 3 Credits 

PHGY 210 Mammalian Physiology 2 3 Credits 
 

B - COMPLEMENTARY SCIENCES (6 credits)

You are required to register for 6 credits (usually 2 courses) as presented in one of the following tracks. You are expected to have a minimum grade of B in all courses for this section. The following two courses are highly recommended and would be very beneficial for students who have not taken genetics and statistics in CEGEP:

  • BIOL 202 Basic Genetics
  • MATH 203 Principles of Statistics 1

 

Note that MATH 203, PSYC 204, BIOL 373 are all equivalent stats courses. You cannot take more than one for credit. Similarly, MATH 204 and PSYC 305 are also equivalent to each other.
