To apply to the undergraduate MD program, a four-year baccalaureate degree in any discipline from an accredited university is required. Although candidates with three-year degrees are occasionally admitted, a four-year degree is strongly preferred.
The Admissions Committee recognizes that the appropriate academic preparation for the study of medicine can be acquired through many varied educational backgrounds. There are no specific course requirements to apply to the Dalhousie MD program.
Students who are enrolled in undergraduate or graduate studies programs at the time of application and who receive an admissions offer will be required to successfully complete their program of study before beginning the undergraduate medical education curriculum. If the degree program is not completed, the admissions offer is rescinded. Thus, it is expected that students will apply during their last year of study.
Eligibility for admission to Dalhousie's Undergraduate medical Education program requires applicants to meet minimum academic requirements (GPA), MCAT and minimum non-academic requirements (CASPer), (MMI), (Personal Statement/Supplemental). Applicants who do not meet all minimum requirements are not considered for admission. Final selection for admission is determined by (application file score).
