The objective of the HMB: Health and Disease program at the University of Toronto is to provide students with a solid foundation in the biological sciences as it relates to basic human physiology and the mechanisms of disease and to facilitate the integration of concepts from across the life sciences, social sciences and humanities. 


About this Degree

In addition, students will acquire skills in laboratory science, experience with quantitative approaches, and develop effective communication skills to provide an appropriate background essential to research and problem solving in this field.

After first year life science courses, undergraduate students may enter the Human Biology program in their selected HMB program: Fundamental Genetics and its Applications, Global Health, Health and Disease, Human Biology, and Neuroscience.  HMB students start by taking foundational courses to provide background on their subject area and introduce students to topics integral to the study of human biology.  Students then progress to more specialised topics and have more detailed instruction but are also encouraged to participate in self-directed and group learning. In their final year, HMB students are further engaged to practice critical analysis by taking one of our specialized seminar courses in their program, which focuses on expanding the depth of knowledge the student has acquired while studying human biology at the University of Toronto.
