Chair’s Welcome

The Department of Biomedical Sciences provides professional contributions in teaching, basic and applied research, diagnostic service, and continuing education. There are five operational areas in the department:

  • Animal Behaviour
  • Physiology, Pharmacology & Toxicology
  • Cell and Molecular Biology
  • Neuroscience
  • Endocrinology

In the DVM curriculum we present fourteen courses and five elective rotations annually. Nine of these occur in the first year, two in the second year, three in the third year and faculty contribute to two additional elective rotations in the fourth year. In addition, the Department also offers two courses in the School of Nursing on an annual basis. The Department offers twenty-two courses within the graduate program according to demand; most of these are presented biannually.
