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 four 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 C1-C5 requirements.

Biochemistry, Microbiology & Immunology
Biomedical Foundations
Biomedical Neuroscience
Cellular, Physiological and Pharmacological Sciences
