  • PHYS 101-3 Physics for the Life Sciences I
  • PHYS 120-3 Mechanics and Modern Physics
  • PHYS 125-3 Mechanics and Special Relativity
  • PHYS 140-4 Studio Physics - Mechanics and Modern Physics

Applicants are selected based on an admission grade point average (GPA) calculated over these five required courses, together with any of the following courses.

  • BISC 102-4 General Biology
  • CHEM 122-2 General Chemistry II
  • CHEM 126-2 General Chemistry Laboratory II

Apply for admission as soon as the five required courses have been completed. Unsuccessful applicants may complete any of the 8 additional courses to improve the admission GPA. A C- grade or better is required in each course used for the admission application. Those not meeting the admission GPA upon completion of all eight additional courses will be advised of alternatives. For students transferring some core courses from another post-secondary institution, only courses completed at Simon Fraser University (and not previously completed elsewhere) are used in the admission GPA. Normally, at least 15 units from core courses are required as a basis for the GPA calculation. Exceptions must be approved by the department.

Application Procedure

Students should complete a program approval form available on the Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology website and submit it to the academic advisor by June 1 for fall term approval, October 1 for spring term approval, or February 1 for summer term approval.
