Med-P Curriculum

Curriculum

A student accepted to the five-year program will be required to register for a full year in the Faculty of Science. In that year, the student must take courses totalling 30 credits. Following the successful completion of this year, determined by a Student Promotions Committee, students will proceed into the first year of the four-year program. Students must obtain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 with all individual grades "B" or higher for required courses and passing grades for all complementary courses to be promoted into the first year of the MDCM Program.

Note: Students failing to meet these requirements will be able to transfer into a B.Sc. and may reapply to the MDCM Program following completion of the undergraduate degree. Please note that a grade of B in all courses would lead to a GPA of 3.0 and that a grade of B in required courses and grades below B in complementary courses would lead to a GPA below 3.0.
