The Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology programs provide education in the discipline
of neuroscience. This program includes education in many of the major topics in neuroscience including
molecular and cellular neuroscience, systems and sensory neuroscience, behavioural and cognitive
neuroscience, neurophysiology and neuroanatomy. Programs in Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology
include essential prerequisite courses for life science professional schools (e.g. Medicine, Dentistry,
Pharmacy and Nutrition, Veterinary Medicine) and while this program focuses on neuroscience it
prepares students for graduate studies in many areas of the life sciences. Graduates at all levels find
employment in academia, industry and other life science research enterprises.

The five B.Sc. degree programs listed below share a set of courses (the Biomedical Science Common
Core) which are to be taken in years 1 & 2. These courses have been incorporated into the M1, M3, and
M4 requirements.
