2. Official transcripts for all post-secondary education, including proof of completed baccalaureate degree. Official transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing institution to the Registrar. Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in last 20 courses (average GPA of accepted applicants is usually higher). Undergraduate degree must be in an area related to Health Sciences and from a recognized university. Note: this requirement is occasionally waived in certain circumstances (e.g., despite not having an undergraduate degree in a Health Sciences area, the student has  significant work experience in health care and has successfully taken recent courses in research methods, statistics, and/or health that would prepare him/her for the M.Sc.).

3. Letters of Reference - List the names and contact information of three referees, two of which must be academic, who will complete a confidential letter of reference on your behalf, articulating your background preparation and suitability for graduate work. You must have studied with at least one referee.
• Once you submit your Letter of Reference request, an email will be sent to your referee with instructions for proceeding with the online Letter of Reference.
• Online Letters of Reference will automatically be matched to your application upon submission.
• You can manage your requests for Letters of Reference and send reminder emails in your ApplyWeb account.

4. The CV and Letter of Intent are uploaded through the online application system.

5. Application packages are initially reviewed by faculty members of the Faculty of Health Sciences who are also members of the School of Graduate Studies. A recommendation is then sent to the MSc Program Committee about which students should be admitted. These recommendations are based on student quality, student suitability, and the capacity for eligible faculty to supervise students. However, the School of Graduate Studies makes the final decision about admissions.

6.
