Students in the Master’s Program must complete 12 credits in addition to their 18 credit thesis for a total of 30 credits. 9 of these credits must be from graduate level courses.

Please note that if you are planning on transferring from the MSc program to the PhD program you must complete 9 credits from graduate level courses of first-class standing between the first and second year in order to qualify.

Students in the PhD Program who already hold a Master’s must only complete the required core courses. Students entering directly from a bachelor’s degree must, during the first two years of study, complete a total of 12 credits with a first class average, of which at least 9 credits must be at the 500-level or above and at least 9 credits must be of first class standing, to maintain registration as a doctoral student.

DID YOU KNOW?  Both of our core courses and most of our elective courses are located at or around the Vancouver General Hospital.
