Core Courses

This Department contributes to the multidisciplinary curriculum of the M.D.,C.M. program during the Fundamentals of Medicine and Dentistry (FMD) and Clerkship components.

Putting It All Together: Basic Science, Medicine, and Society (Anatomy for Surgeons – Basic and Translational Science Selective)

Putting It All Together: Basic Science, Medicine, and Society (Anatomy for Surgeons – Basic and Translational Science Selective)

A selection of practical anatomy, seminar presentations, and clinical anatomical conferences is provided during the Senior Clerkship Component to supplement the knowledge of human anatomy obtained in the core program. It is specifically designed to provide the anatomical basis for surgical practice.

This selective is an opportunity to acquire a meaningful hands-on familiarity with human anatomy and the confidence for tackling further work in the operating room. Anatomy for Surgeons is a relevant course for any student entering residency. Students will perform comprehensive regional dissections according to the stream (head and neck, limbs, or trunk) in which they are enrolled. The dissection sessions will be supplemented with artificial 3D applications and case-study presentations form clinical experts. Upon completion of their dissections, students will present their work to the supervising anatomy faculty and receive an oral exam on the relevant content. Students will also prepare two presentations: one on a common anatomical variation associated with their stream, and another on diagnostic imaging related to their stream. For each of these assignments, students will conduct a thorough review of the relevant literature and present their topic to their peers with supporting anatomical and radiological images

About the Department of Physiology

About the Department of Physiology

Physiology has its roots in many of the basic sciences—including biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics—and overlaps with other biomedical sciences such as anatomy, biochemistry, microbiology & immunology, neurology, pathology, pharmacology, psychology, and biomedical engineering. Physiology is one of the prime contributors of basic scientific knowledge to the clinical medical sciences. Members of the Department of Physiology at McGill are engaged in studies dealing with molecules, single cells, or entire systems in a variety of vertebrates, including humans. A wide range of interest and expertise is represented, including:

  • biomathematics;
  • biophysics;
  • cardiovascular physiology;
  • endocrinology;
  • gastrointestinal and renal physiology;
  • immunology;
  • neurophysiology;
  • physiology of exercise;
  • respiratory physiology.

The Department also has a rich graduate research program leading to either an M.Sc. or a Ph.D. degree, and is a participant in McGill's M.D.,C.M. & Ph.D. program.

Some faculty members have formal or informal links with the Departments of Mathematics and Statistics; Physics; Electrical and Computer Engineering; and Chemistry, and with clinical medical departments, reflecting and reinforcing the close ties between physiology and other disciplines.

Please see the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences' Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies section, and the Faculty of Science's Undergraduate section for more information.

About The Victor Phillip Dahdaleh Institute of Genomic Medicine

McGill has long been a leader in Canada and internationally in the increasingly vital fields of RNA, DNA, and genomics research. In concert with the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and affiliated hospitals within the McGill University Health Centre, the newly created institute aims to maximize opportunities to apply genomics for clinical interventions in high-priority fields where McGill is already an established leader—such as cancer, neuroscience and mental health, chronic inflammatory diseases and infectious diseases, including COVID-19.

By harnessing the interdisciplinary expertise and research infrastructure across McGill’s faculties, the Institute seeks to implement a full spectrum approach to genomic medicine, which draws on information from a person’s genes and how they interact to inform an individual’s clinical care. McGill researchers will work to lead breakthrough research aimed at the development of cutting-edge diagnostic tools, targeted treatments, and new pharmaceuticals and preventative vaccines. Additionally, the Institute’s social sciences pillar will draw on expertise across the University to lead important research on the ethical, policy, and legal implications of genomic medicine.
