CASPer Requirement (NEW)
New for the 2017-2018 application cycle, all applicants to Dalhousie's Undergraduate Medical Education program are required to complete a mandatory 90-minute computer-based test (CASPer), to assist with our selection process. Successful completion of CASPer is mandatory in order to maintain admission eligibility.
CASPer assesses for non-cognitive skills and interpersonal characteristics we believe are important for successful students and graduates of our program and will complement our other applicant screening tools. In implementing CASPer, we are trying to further enhance fairness and objectivity in our selection process.
To see examples of the test structure, schedule your test and take CASPer on your chosen test date, please visit takeCASPer.com
For the 2017-2018 application cycle, Dalhousie Admissions will accept results from CASPer test dates in August (exact dates to be confirmed)
CASPer results will be used for interview selection purposes only. Applicants who do not complete CASPer or who do not meet the minimum CASPer score of greater than 1.5 standard deviations below the applicant category mean will not be considered.
