Admission Information


We are now accepting graduate student applications

The professional Master’s in Medical Genomics program is designed for competent students. We will extend admissions to students from diverse academic backgrounds and will prioritize the potential for success over any single axis of academic achievement. In addition to meeting the Department of Molecular Genetics admission requirements, applicants must satisfy the following minimal criteria for either stream:

An appropriate Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree with high academic standing from a recognized university, with a B+ average or better over the last two years of study. The undergraduate degree should display competence in genetics, molecular biology, or related fields.

  • A PharmD or equivalent degree in Pharmacy or Pharmacology

  • A PDEP accredited B.Sc. in Food & Nutrition. If the B.Sc. program was not fully integrated with an internship, applicants must also have completed their dietitians' internship / Master's practicum

  • Registration with a recognized College of Nurses, and completion of a College approved Nurse Practitioner graduate program

  • At least 1 year of an undergraduate medical degree from an accredited university

  • A recognized Genetic Counselling degree
