Hey, I was accepted to McMaster's BHSc program and I was wondering if the content of the Biomedical sciences specialization has the amount of science I would learn in another program or if I should minor in some other  science field while at Mac or if I should just avoid mac all together  

 

Here's the courses for the specialization in second year:

  • CHEM 2OA3
  • HTH SCI 2A03 - STATISTICS
  • HTH SCI 2D06 - INQUIRY II (TRANSFERS ONLY)
  • HTH SCI 2G03 - EPIDEMIOLOGY
  • HTH SCI 2K03 - CELL BIOLOGY
  • BIOCHEM 2L06
  • BIOCHEM 2B03, 2BB3
  • HTH SCI 1BS0

There's also these 2nd year BHSc programs that I'd like to take but idk how many courses I can take in one year yet

  • HTH SCI 2F03 - HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY & ANATOMY I
  • HTH SCI 2FF3 - HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY & ANATOMY II
  • HTH SCI 2G03 - EPIDEMIOLOGY
  • HTH SCI 2J03 - HEALTH, ATTITUDE & BEHAVIOUR
  • HTH SCI 2K03 - CELL BIOLOGY
  • HTH SCI 1BS0 - BIOSAFETY TRAINING
Third:
  • HTH SCI 3E03 - INQUIRY III
  • HTH SCI 3G03 -CRITICAL APPRAISAL OF THE MEDICAL LITERATURE
  • HTH SCI 3V03 - RESEARCH AND EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN

6-9 units from: Level III/IV Biochemistry courses

  • BIOCHEM 3D03 - METABOLISM AND REGULATION
  • CHEM 2OB3

Fourth:

6-9 units from:

  • Level III/IV BIOCHEM
  • HTH SCI 3SB3, 4II3, 4J03
  • MOL BIOL 4H03
  • BIOCHEM 4E03

9-12 units from:

  • BIOCHEM 4F09 - SENIOR THESIS IN BIOCHEMISTRY AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY, OR
  • HTH SCI 4R12 - SENIOR THESIS

 

I really enjoy science so I would be willing to work hard for a good GPA but I just want to know if this is a good program as my goal is to be a physician-scientist. I was looking at UofT's MD/PhD alumni and there were a handful of Mac BHSc holders so I guess that indicates that this program can prepare you for a career in science? idk

Edit: 

there's also this on the site:

 

  • A ‘research intensive' option, available to students registered in this specialization, offers additional laboratory research experience through completion of HTH SCI 3R06 and HTH SCI 4R12. This option is intended for students planning to pursue graduate studies or a career in research and development. Enrolment in the courses is limited and admission is by selection.
