Pre Health Sciences

Pre-Med Training
Start your career to becoming a Medical Doctor.

Pre-Health Sciences Program, Pre-Med Program from CIMT College

Students complete 90 credit hours of the Pre-Med program in one year, which provides the prerequisites to be qualified and eligible for admission into several MD programs. Our curriculum of Pre-Med courses and our overall diploma program is accepted by many of the universities where students want to go! And all of the training takes place locally, at our Brampton, Mississauga campuses.

There is a pending government-declared shortage for general practitioners and medical specialists in Canada. It is estimated that 28,300 new jobs will open up through 2024 across Canada. Once you are at the medical school in the Caribbean, you may choose to specialize in Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Maternity, Pathology, Pediatrics, Neurology, Psychiatry, Oncology, or much more.

You have a Choice of Medical Schools!

Other colleges are partnered with one medical school, so you have no choice of where your medical studies will take place. CIMT College is affiliated with many Schools of Medicine located on various Caribbean islands. Because of our multiple articulation agreements, students have a choice of 10 or more destinations for medical school, all with guaranteed acceptance with our medical school partners for a 4 year MD program! Ask your Admissions Advisor for a current list of our partners and what conditions and GPA are required by each when you come for your FREE Campus Tour. Our staff will help you smooth your transition to medical school, by helping you to reserve your seat, and guiding you on when and how to apply to your medical school choice.

PROGRAM OUTLINE

General Biology

This course provides an overview of an introduction to the foundations of biology. Topics of lectures include the chemistry of life, the cell, genetics, membrane structure and function, cellular respiration, macromolecules, nutrition and digestion, photosynthesis, ecology, and more.

Medical Terminology

This course explores frequently used medical words and abbreviations, along with terms identifying major body systems in health and disease. Emphasis is placed on spelling and pronunciation in order for the student to communicate accurately with patients and other professionals in the health care field.

General Chemistry

This course provides background knowledge of the foundations of chemistry. Topics of lectures include atomic structure, theories of chemical bonding, gas laws, chemical equilibria, weak acids and bases, acid-base equilibria, thermodynamics and thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, solubility, and electrochemistry.

Calculus I

This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of calculus. Topics of the lectures include functions and models, inverse and logarithmic functions, limits and derivatives, concavity, and differentiation.

English I

This course is designed to lay effective groundwork for becoming a better writer, including organizing your writing, and having an effective writing process. The basics will be reinforced, including parts of speech -- subjects and verbs, sentence types, pronouns, articles, adjectives and adverbs. Students learn common proofreading errors like subject-verb agreement, sentence fragments, run-ons and comma splices.

Organic Chemistry I

This course introduces students to the basic principles that govern the structure of molecules. Topics of lectures include the structures and properties of alkenes, the concept of stereoisomerism, acids and bases, alkenes, and unsaturated hydrocarbons. Students learn nomenclature and classification of organic molecules, structure and reactivity of functional groups -- hydrocarbons, alcohols, alkyl halides, alkadienes and allylic systems.

Physics I

This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of physics. Lecture topics include an introduction to kinematics, forces, motion, and dynamics of uniform circular motion, work, energy, impulse and momentum. Students also learn about fluids, temperature and heat, rotational kinematics and dynamics.

Cell Biology and Histology

This course is designed at a pre-professional level with the aim of in-depth understanding of role of macromolecules in the hierarchy of the cellular organization. The course aims at complete knowledge of the metabolic machinery of the cell in both plants and animals. This course emphasizes evolution, organismal diversity, and genetics.

Organic Chemistry II

This course provides insight and knowledge of the chemical principles and reactions which are utilized in biochemical processes, molecular level of organization, understanding the chemistry of the carbohydrates and proteins, the basic building blocks of our body. Lecture topics also include understanding of how genes and DNA work, the role of neurotransmitters and hormones in communication, biochemistry and disease.

Physics II

This course provides a continuation of the understanding of physics. Topics of lectures include wave motions and the laws of thermodynamics, the nature and speed of waves and sound, electricity and magnetism. Students learn the different laws and rules of energy, mechanics of electric and magnetic fields, and the properties of light, reflection and refraction.

Calculus II

This course provides a continuation of the understanding of calculus. Topics of the lectures include antiderivatives and integrals, integration, differential equations, and parametric equations.

Human Anatomy and Physiology

This course is an introduction to the major concepts of human anatomy and physiology. Students gain knowledge of the structure and function of body systems and how they work together in health and disease. Topics of lectures include cells and tissues, the integumentary system, the skeletal system, the muscular system, the nervous system, sense organs, and endocrine control. Students also learn about the circulatory system, immune response, the respiratory system, the digestive system, the urinary system and reproduction.

English II

This course develops effective writing for letters, emails, and business correspondence. Students learn how to convey their message with special attention to tone and word choice. Grammar and spelling which was learned in English I is utilized in English II as students begin to craft formal and informal correspondence for an expanded range of purposes. Students learn correct medical letter format as they create messages to express sympathy, resolve a conflict, or provide reassurance. Students also create referral letters, patient termination letters, and absence letters. Attention is paid to proofreading since accuracy in medical writing is of paramount importance.

Evidence Based Research I, II and III

These three courses, one per semester, are designed to introduce the process of effective independent research. Each semester, students are given an assignment for solely independent investigation, resulting in a properly written and formatted submission. Students are required to perform in-depth research, thoroughly annotated, in order to generate an analysis on various unique topics with attention to spelling and grammar, plagiarism, and independent professional writing.
