Undergraduate Students

Research is the cornerstone of an undergraduate education. The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Research and Graduate Studies Office seeks to expand research opportunities for interested students in our undergraduate biomedical sciences programs. We oversee the NSERC undergraduate research program competition and other donor-named undergraduate awards. Our undergraduate students can engage in research with faculty members in all disciplines.

Undergraduate research provides the opportunity for our students to

  • Work closely with a faculty mentor
  • Learn by doing
  • Increase confidence in scholarly abilities
  • Develop teamwork and collaboration skills
  • Build a portfolio of research experiences
  • Gain respect in their chosen fields of study
  • Create a network for academic endeavors
