Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours) - Medical Health Informatics (ESM) at Western University : Tuition Fee: $33,526.00 CAD / Year (Scholarship Available)

Medical Sciences is a "first-entry" program into the Faculty of Science at Western. High school students interested in studying the basic medical sciences (human biology) modules at an advanced level in the BMSc Program should select MEDICAL SCIENCES on the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC). Admission to Medical Sciences is not admission to the BMSc Program. Students are registered as Medical Sciences students in Years 1 and 2, and apply to the BMSc Program when they enter Year 3. Entry into the BMSc Program is competitive and limited but admission is assured for Medical Sciences 2 students who achieve a minimum average of 80%, with no mark less than 60%, in the Year 2 courses that are specific to the student's module of interest for Year 3 BMSc.

Medical Health Informatics is an interdisciplinary field that brings together computer sciences, the medical sciences and health care, to achieve better health for Canadians.

Informaticians have the knowledge and skills to assist in the creation and use of health-related data, as well as the implementation and applications of information/communication technologies in the health system that will enable and support all aspects of safe, efficient and effective health services (e.g., planning, research, development, organization, provision, evaluation of services).

In the Honours Specialization in Medical Health Informatics, students combine foundational courses in both the medical sciences (such as understanding the biochemistry and pathophysiology of disease) and computer sciences (in algorithms, data structures, databases, computer networks and human-computer interaction). Additional course in health informatics and health information management are offered through the Department of Pathology. Enrolment in the module is limited and lead to a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) degree.


NOTE: Please note the English scores listed are minimum requirements. Meeting the minimums does not guarantee admission. Students with low English scores may be admitted to the English BOOST Program, a 9 week training program for conditional admission to their chosen program.
