BMLSc 40th Anniversary

This year marks the 40th graduating class of the BMLSc Program! Our alumni, now 621 strong, are outstanding contributors to society, taking on an incredible diversity of roles. As part of our anniversary celebration, with support of the Faculty of Medicine Alumni Engagement office, we reached out to alumni to find out where they are now and how the BMLSc Program helped them get there. Meet eight alumni who graduated between 1982 (the first graduating cohort) and 2019. We also share a 2-minute video of reflections from the class of 2020.
