Grad studies in Animal physiology

Recommended Posts


I'm a 4th year student at uOttawa in biomedical science. I'm set to graduate this spring and I've been thinking of what I'll do next. I applied to uOttawa med (french stream) for the first time in fall 2019; however, my wGPA was not the best (3.81) but so far, it's going up and it should (hopefully) be closer to a 3.9 once I graduate. I haven't heard anything from uOttawa yet but I'm trying to be realistic. 

I'm considering applying for a Master's. I'm doing my honours project in animal physiology (behaviour and stress) and I really enjoy it. I'm not doing a Master's to improve my grade; I like research and I want to have a backup plan in case med doesn't pan out. If med does work, I'm wondering how will animal physiology (in fish and insects) show my passion for human medicine and specifically, psychiatry? Will that affect my interview score or something like that? 

I'm just looking for some advice. Thank you in advance!
