To sign-up for MBP modules, please complete the Module Selection form via https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VXK9L8Z.  If students wish to complete two modules for half a credit and receive a grade on the U of T transcript, please also complete an Add/Drop form to enroll in MBP1102H Modules in Medical Biophysics II and scan the completed form to daphne.sears@utoronto.ca. 

Withdrawing from a Module
Students can withdraw from a module up until the end of the 3rd class or as long as no more than 50% of the module has been completed. While many instructors and programs consider it best practice to provide students with an interim evaluation of their performance in the course prior to the drop date, this is not a requirement for graduate courses (as per the University Assessment and Grading Practices Policy 2012).

*Students who are interested in either auditing or taking “Medical Device Innovations & Entrepreneurship” for credit are also required to register at https://mdie2017.eventbrite.com.
