Department of Pathology - Graduate Studies

The Department of Pathology offers Full-time and Part-time degrees of Master of Science (M.Sc.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). The Department of Pathology has a strong graduate program with a unique focus on bridging the basic and clinical sciences in the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry. The program is housed within the department and has both basic science and clinical science components, and a commitment to research and teaching. There has been a graduate program in Pathology since the inception of the Faculty of Graduate Studies in 1947. Some of its distinguished graduates over the past 56 years exemplify this tradition of joining basic science investigations with clinical applications. Graduate studies in the Department of Pathology are offered to those  interested in acquiring a more extensive knowledge of the mechanisms of cell and tissue injury and of the etiology, pathogenesis and behaviour of disease.

Information on degree requirements and the program for prospective students is available under 'About the Program'. Current students can find a copy of the current handbook, courses, journal club schedule, etc under 'For current students'.

A description of the part-time graduate degree program in Pathology is also available under 'Part-time Program'. Please feel free to contact us regarding any questions or comments you may have.
