Physics 1028

Physics for the Biological and Medical Sciences

Prospective Students > What can I do after this?

What can I do next once I complete Physics 1028 and Physics 1029?

Here is a list of the exciting things ahead once you have mastered the Physics for the Life Sciences courses in first year.

Bachelor of Medical Sciences

Your home faculty is Science. You like topics such as biochemistry, biophysics, physiology, toxicology, anatomy, pharmacology. Then the B. M. Sc. is of interest to you. This is a competitive program, you need high marks in your first year courses to get in. Last year, for example, an average of 80% in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Math. In Physics 028a and 029b a lot of students beat that average. Why? Because students who choose this Physics course are motivated and focus on their studies.

Bachelor of Science

Your home faculty is Science. You are interested in the life sciences, but somehow the B. M. Sc. is not for you. There is a large number of programs to choose from, e.g. in Biology, Environmental Science and Medical Physics. YES! Medical Physics is an exciting new career path that we develop right now with support from the Deans of Science and Medicine, and the Provost, because Western really wants to give you great choices, be it within or be it outside the B.M.Sc. path.

A degree in Kinesiology or the Bachelor of Health Sciences

Your home faculty is Health Sciences. Whichever program you pursue in that Faculty, scan through the list of courses we offer in Physics. Introduction to Medical Physics, Physics 2128/2129, or Medical Biophysics 2128/2129 might be of interest to you.
