Molecular Medicine (PhD)
This program will give you the opportunity to help advance knowledge and develop new therapies in a number of medical fields.
Applicants must have a master’s degree in biochemistry, microbiology, biology, chemistry, pharmaceutics, physics, medicine, or an equivalent degree.
Applicants must have a grade point average of at least 3.0 out of 4.33.
Applicants must have a good knowledge of written and spoken French.
It requires students to achieve a specific level of English proficiency during their studies, including a good understanding of written English. Students’ understanding of written English will be assessed by means of a test administered before or at the beginning of the first term.
