Biomedical Science

An investment that works

By hiring a CO-OP student from the University of Ottawa, you invest in a winning combination! You get a motivated and enthusiastic employee while giving a student the chance to put his or her academic training to the test. The University of Ottawa is the place to recruit CO-OP students!

Only the top students are admitted to the program. Each one has achieved a cumulative grade point average of at least 6 out of 10 (a B average). Students begin their first work term after having completed two and a half years of study which gives them a strong academic background to help them succeed on the job. Students are available year-round. You may choose French-speaking, English-speaking or bilingual students. The sequence of work and study terms is shown below.

Skills that are in demand

The Faculty of Science's program in Biomedical Science presents the student many options. The first two years provide a background in anatomy, psychology and health sciences in addition to the basic sciences such as biology and chemistry. After year-two students can chose to combine additional courses in biology and biochemistry with a diverse number of optional courses in the humanities or they can chose options that focus on areas of health sciences such as Neurosciences or Cellular and Molecular Medicine. Other options such as Microbiology and Bio-analytical Sciences will likely be available in the next year or two.
