Why Graduate Studies in Medical Sciences?

Graduate Diploma in Medical Sciences and Professional Master's of Medical Sciences are offered through a partnership between the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences (DBMS), Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME), and Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME). The programs are designed to enhance students’ research and clinical skills to align with the requirements of the Canadian Residency Matching Service (CaRMS) process and to promote research and scholarship activities in future physicians. The main goals of the programs are to engage students to explore current issues in medical sciences and to enhance students’ clinical skills in the context of the Canadian healthcare system.


The programs in Medical Sciences have been developed to provide graduates of medical schools, both in Canada and internationally, with an opportunity to enhance their clinical and research skills before applying to a postgraduate residency program. Students will build on the foundations of their medical degree in a variety of ways. They will further develop their clinical skills in the context of the Canadian healthcare system and explore current issues in medical sciences. They’ll interpret foundational research and its relationship to clinical practice, conduct research responsibly using appropriate guidelines and procedures, and apply ethical behaviours consistent with academic integrity and professional standards.

The Graduate Diploma and Professional Master's of Medical Sciences are expected to prove beneficial when graduates submit their applications for postgraduate residency positions. The residency admission process, coordinated through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS), is highly selective and applicants will be well-positioned to demonstrate the new clinical and research skills they have developed through these programs.
