|Description:||The Honours Biology & Pharmacology Co-op Program is a cooperative education program, which includes semesters of on-campus study with periods of academically related paid employment. Students enter this program as third year students after completion of Level II Honours Biology or Molecular Biology. Graduation from this five-year program requires that each student complete three work terms, which alternate with academic terms. Students are placed in work situations that expand their educational experience by using their academic skills in a challenging work environment. As a result, students gain practical knowledge and exposure to real-life problems. In recent years, students from this program have conducted work terms in the following areas: basic research and development; in vivo and in vitro pharmacological, biochemical and toxicological studies; planning, design and implementation of clinical trials; medical information and product evaluation; governmental and corporate regulatory affairs; and pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacoeconomics.|
