Prerequisites for Graduate Studies in Oncology
Most schools offer an MD degree in oncology (specializing in radiation oncology, surgical oncology, and/or medical oncology). The University of Alberta also offers a graduate research program (MSc and PhD) in experimental oncology.
Admission to the University of Alberta's graduate program is restricted to students with at least a B+ average in a previous undergraduate degree in a relevant field. A GRE (graduate record examination) score of at least 75% is required from International students. MUN also offers MSc and PhD programs in cancer research. You need an undergraduate degree in a related field with at least a B average for admission to the MSc program. Completion of an MSc degree is necessary for admission to the PhD program.
Students currently taking an undergraduate degree in any discipline are usually eligible for admission to the MD program; in some cases full completion of the previous degree is mandatory. Some schools require an average of at least B in the previous degree (and of course, the higher the average, the better). Completion of relevant courses such as biology or chemistry is considered an asset, rounded out with several humanities and social sciences courses. Additionally, the MCAT (medical college admission test) must be written. A score of at least 27 is considered an asset for admission.
Generally, students who are in their final year of medical training are automatically eligible for residency training.
