2023 Admissions

Waitlist Post-Interview

Waitlist for Offers of Admission

Information for applicants offered a place on the waitlist for admission to the MDCM program. 

Please note that waitlists for each applicant category are distinct, and positions on waitlists cannot be interchanged between categories. The Undergraduate Medical Admissions Office retains only a certain number of positions on the waiting list for each applicant category. Offers of admission are made when places become available, and this can occur right up until the beginning of classes. As such, candidates on the waitlist must complete the immunization and Basic Cardiac Life Support (BCLS) certification requirements (indicated in your Minerva checklist items) as soon as possible and by July 31, 2022 at the latest.

It is expected that candidates' contact information in Minerva is up-to-date. Please ensure that we can reach you in the event that we are able to make you an offer. 

Waitlist Rank: Candidates will be notified of their waitlist position through MinervaCandidates must confirm their waitlist offer via Minerva to retain their position. Waitlist positions can also be declined through Minerva.

If you indicated either preference for the site selection, you will see a # beside MTL & OUTA, to indicate your waitlist number for each Campus

Special Pathways or Cohorts

  • If you are eligible for an offer in the CDNI pathway or the MD-PhD cohort, you will not see a number, only “CDNI Waitlist” or “MDCM-PhD Waitlist”.
  • No number is provided for these waitlists because they are both very short; the numbers you see are for your general residency cohort waitlist (Quebec, Canadian or International).
  • MD PhD waitlist order depends on availability of seats per residency cohort.
