2023 Admissions

Québec residents with an undergraduate degree

Please view the following for our admission requirements and selection process: PDF icon QC Residents - University Level

Note the following changes as you prepare your application:  

  1. Removal of the Basic Science Prerequisite expiry date
  2. Update to the full-time study requirement

With the removal of the Basic Science Prerequisite expiry date and an update to the full-time study requirement, the regular admissions pathway is now even more welcoming to applicants with a diversity of backgrounds and experience.


An applicant is eligible to apply as a member of this category if he or she (a) has their status of Québec residency fully established (not provisionally) by the application deadline (see 'Key Dates' below), (b) will have obtained, by July 31 of the entering year of medicine, an undergraduate (Bachelor's) degree for admission as per the Degree requirements and (c) adheres to all other general and educational requirements.

As per the MCAT Policy, applicants in this category are not required to send their MCAT results and will not be invited to submit them optionally for undergraduate degrees obtained in Canada. For degrees obtained outside of Canada the MCAT is required.

Applicants in this category can apply to the MDCM, or MDCM & Ph.D. program.   Because both programs have MDCM as their foundation, applicants need only submit one application to their preferred program.  There is no quota for combined-program applications. For the MDCM program, candidates have the choice to select their campus after their MMI to study in Montreal (in English) or in Outaouais (in French).
