IX. Graduate Programs
The Department specializes in scientific disciplines which are basic to human and veterinary medicine. Within this context, the research activities of the faculty are focused under the general umbrella of biomedical science and biotechnology. The MBS, MSc and PhD programs provide emphasis in one of the department's three major fields: Reproductive Biology, Developmental, Cell and Tissue Morphology, and Biomedical Toxicology/Pharmacology. The department also participates in the Doctor of Veterinary Science (DVSc) program, co-ordinated by an interdepartmental committee chaired by the Associate Dean (graduate studies and research) of the Ontario Veterinary College.
