2016 Admissions Review Committee Report

A review of Dalhousie Medicine Admissions was completed in 2016.

A copy of the Review Committee’s report can be found here [PDF - 623KB].

The report and recommendations have been helpful for the Admissions Office and Admissions Committee to reflect on, and consider changes to the Admissions Process including amendments to the Admissions Committee’s Terms of Reference and introduction of a new requirement for assessing non-academic attributes (CASPer).

The Admissions Office and Admissions Committee will endeavour to continue to balance the use of evidence-based tools and the assessment of applicants in a holistic manner for the purpose of selecting the most suitable candidates to enter Dalhousie medical school and become caring, compassionate, competent physicians to dutifully serve our communities.
