Overview

The Division groups over 200 members (both Faculty and Associate members) whose areas of interest are wide-ranging and diverse. In addition, the Division includes over 300 graduate students enrolled in one or the other of the 6 programs presently being offered. These programs are:

  1. Ph.D. in Experimental Medicine
  2. Ph.D., Environment Option
  3. M.Sc. in Experimental Medicine
  4. M.Sc., Bioethics Option
  5. M.Sc., Environment Option
  6. Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research (for Canadians and permanent residents ONLY)

Additional information about the individual programs can be found HERE.

Applicants for the Ph.D. program must normally hold an M.Sc. degree. However, candidates who have only a B.Sc. degree but who have demonstrated academic excellence (cGPA of 3.5 out of a possible maximum of 4.0 throughout their undergraduate studies) can be considered for direct entry into the Ph.D., if they so desire. These candidates should clearly indicate (on the application form) that they are seeking entry into the Ph.D. program rather than the M.Sc.

Applicants for the M.Sc., M.Sc. (Environment Option) or Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research must hold a B.Sc. degree or its equivalent.

Applicants for the M.Sc. (Bioethics Option) program must hold an M.D., Nursing, Physical and Occupational Therapy and/or any other professional health training degree. Students who do not fit these criteria may be considered for admission on an individual basis.

All prospective students are encouraged to refer to the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website (http://www.mcgill.ca/gradapplicants/) for information of interest to them specifically. Moreover, they are encouraged to read “Your Future: A Guide for Potential Graduate Studies” (PDF) authored by the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS), for useful information, tips and insights into studying at the graduate level.
