The Faculty of Medicine of McGill University conducts a thorough, multi-criteria evaluation of applications to its programs. We attend to each candidate's academic and non-academic achievements. Screening and selection processes are continually scrutinized, in an effort to ensure transparency and fairness to all candidates.
Educational requirements are organized on this page according to program.
Admission to the Faculty of Medicine is highly competitive and meeting the eligibility requirements is not a guarantee of admission.
In the past few years, about 2500 applications have been received per cycle; about 500 interviews conducted for approximately 185 available positions in the first year class
Selected candidates will be invited by the Faculty of Medicine for an on-site interview session. Attendance is by invitation-only, sent via electronic mail by the date published according to the applicant category. Candidates cannot be admitted without an interview. Interviews are an important tool for the Admissions Board to evaluate the non-academic strength of applicants.
