In a new College of Medicine (CoM) blog post, Scott Napper, Lead, Undergraduate BMSC Program Development, wrote about the exciting times ahead in biomedical sciences.
New biomedical science undergraduate majors are on the way for May 1, 2020. Changes are coming for both the four-year and three-year degree programs.
In his post, Napper said that a benefit of the “efforts to optimize the biomedical science programs is the closer working relationship growing between the CoM and the College of Arts and Science.”
“The USask biomedical science program is somewhat unique in that the biomedical science departments are housed within the CoM, while the associated undergraduate degrees are offered through Arts and Science. Academically, each biomedical science major reflects nearly equal contribution of courses taught by faculty of each college,” Napper stated.
“While the colleges have historically maintained a strong working relationship, recent united efforts by faculty and staff of both colleges have enhanced appreciation for the greater partnership opportunities that are possible. Ongoing collaborations between the colleges will further improve the program while epitomizing the priority in USask’s Plan 2025 of cross-college collaboration. In this regard, there are other exciting plans for the future!”
