Basic Scientific Principles that All Students Should Know Upon Entering Medical / Dental School

Science and the scientific method, enacted through the compassionate lens of humanism, form the basis of medical knowledge and practice. Students admitted to our program are strongly recommended to review and understand these key concepts which admitted students are expected to have been exposed to through the course of prior training, general CEGEP and university level courses. These concepts have been identified by the MD CM curriculum leadership as foundational to the study of Medicine and Dentistry at McGill. This list is meant to assist admitted students in identifying areas they may wish to master prior to starting in the MD CM or DMD curricula. This list may also be useful to potential applicants in the course of planning their academic programs prior to applying to the MD CM or DMD programs at McGill.

Choose a topic to review. Each concept is defined and has keywords for you to lookup in books, on YouTube, Google - learn it anyway you can. Be sure to check out Ted Talks and MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses),
