Admission requirements

Students intending to complete the doctor of medicine program are required to complete a bachelor’s degree, six credit hours in English and the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). The undergraduate degree can be in any discipline. All applicants are screened by an admissions committee that considers academic performance, scores on the MCAT, references, interviews (in some cases), extra-curricular activities, volunteer and/or work experience and any other relevant information.

Admission to the program is competitive for a limited number of placements (80 placements in total). Most placements are reserved for bona fide residents of Newfoundland and Labrador (60 placements including three placements for Aboriginal applicants) plus some reserved specifically for residents of Prince Edward Island (four placements), New Brunswick (10 placements) and Yukon (one placement). The remaining five seats are open to other national and international students.
