Ibiomed 1st year

After completing my first year of ibiomed I have mixed feelings about the program. I loved the professors and ive met some really great friends. I do not like the management of the program. We get one academic advisor and it feels like he is on vacation for like 6 months in the year. It is very difficult to book an appointment with him you have to book like 1 month in advance. we are not allowed to get help from the other academic advisors. I also thought some of the courses could use some better organization. such as 1p10, I loved Dr. Macdonald but the course overall felt disorganized and many of the TAs didn’t know what they were doing (especially for the 1p10 labs). Ibiomed is certainly a unique program but it requires you to select a second eng stream second year, you can’t JUST do biomedical engineering, which I wasn’t fully aware of when accepting this as my program. the HESE side of this program has some very unique courses that give hands on experience but you also have to take some hard eng math courses which could negatively affect your GPA if medcshool is the goal
