1 INTRODUCTION

All statistical data provided com e from an annual survey conducted by the Office of Research and Inform ation Services (ORIS). Individual faculty inform ation is provided by each faculty of m edicine as of July, 2009 and therefore is subject to change. ORIS also publishes Canadian Medical Education Statistics each autum n. This book provides detailed statistics concerning application to and enrolm ent in faculties of m edicine. W hen com paring data from year to year there are certain considerations to keep in m ind. There have been increases to the num ber of available places for the study of m edicine at m any faculties of m edicine. Also, adm ission requirem ents and selection policies of individual faculties of m edicine m ay vary from year to year.

General Information There are seventeen faculties of m edicine in Canada that offer program s of study leading to the award of the MD degree which is the first professional degree in medicine. The faculties of m edicine are listed in a geographic sequence going from east to west which im plies no rank ordering whatsoever. The num ber of places available is determ ined by provincial governm ents based on educational and financial resources as well as Canadas future physician workforce requirem ent. Since the universities are under provincial jurisdiction, the m ajority of places in a faculty of m edicine are allocated to perm anent residents of the province in which the university is located. Provided academ ic prerequisites have been m et, the type of undergraduate degree earned or program followed should not deter filing an application. Also, whether or not the previous institution attended has a faculty of m edicine does not affect the chance of adm ission. An applicant m ust decide to which faculty or faculties of m edicine application will be m ade. Obviously, the geographic location of a faculty of m edicine is of critical im portance to a prospective applicant. For those applicants who are free to m ove to any location where a place m ay be offered, chances of success in gaining adm ission m ay be considerably enhanced. Those who apply to only one faculty of m edicine have the sm allest chance of being offered adm ission. As the num ber of applications increases, so does the chance of being offered a place at a faculty of m edicine. The com petition to enter a faculty of m edicine is very keen so it is im portant that applicants ensure that they fully m eet the entry requirem ents of each faculty of m edicine to which they apply. Not only should applicants plan to m eet all academ ic prerequisites, it is also im portant to respect all deadline dates. In general, an application or docum entation is ignored when received after deadline dates. Those who wish to m axim ize their chances of gaining adm ission to a Canadian faculty of m edicine should consider the following: ! Since residence is considered in adm issions, include the faculty of m edicine located in your hom e province am ongst those to which applications are subm itted. If you are resident in a province with m ore than one faculty of m edicine (Qubec, Ontario or Alberta), try to apply to m ore than one faculty of m edicine in the province. Rem em ber that som e faculties of m edicine have far m ore places to allocate than others. Som e applicants are definite about a particular faculty of m edicine and m ake only one application. In a situation of keen com petition, the determ ination to enter a particular faculty of m edicine m ay be tantam ount to excluding oneself from the study of m edicine altogether.

Ontario M edical School Application Service (OM SAS) Service ontarien de demande dadmission en mdecine The six Ontario faculties of m edicine use OMSAS which is a centralized application processing service, thus applicants subm it only one set of application m aterials and academ ic docum ents regardless of the num ber of faculties to which they are applying. Each faculty of m edicine independently m akes the selection decision. The OMSAS web-site provides an on-line application service m id-July, 2009 as well as additional inform ation related to each facultys adm ission requirem ents. The web-site is a com prehensive one where applicants can obtain inform ation on the application process and can view details concerning their application. The OMSAS levy is com posed of a base fee and an additional fee for each Ontario faculty of m edicine to which application is m ade. The on-line application fees (see below) are dependent on the num ber of faculties chosen. Num ber of Faculties 1 2 3 4 5 6 In Canadian Funds $285 $360 $435 $510 $585 $660

M edical College Admission Test (M CAT) The MCAT is a standardized, m ultiple-choice exam ination designed to assess problem solving, critical thinking and writing skills in addition to the exam inees knowledge of science concepts and principles prerequisite to the study of m edicine. The test is not required by all faculties of m edicine and the extent to which test results are used in adm ission decisions varies by faculty of m edicine. The test consists of four test sections: the Verbal Reasoning, Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences sections contain m ultiple-choice questions and the scores range from a low of 1 to a high of 15 for each section; the W riting Sam ple section consists of two essays and the total score ranges from a low of J to a high of T. The com puter-based test is given at established test centres in Canada, the United States and overseas. Visit the web-site for dates and locations. The overall length of the test day is approxim ately four and one-half hours. The regular exam ination fee was $2225 in US funds for the 2009 test dates.

Repeat Applicants An applicant who does not receive an offer of adm ission m ust decide whether to re-apply for adm ission in a subsequent year. Rejected candidates should try to reach an objective assessm ent of why they did not receive an offer. Unsuccessful applicants should realize that the reason for rejection m ay not be the lack of ability or qualities but the sheer rationing of places that is necessary when the num ber of qualified candidates greatly exceeds the num ber of available places. W ell qualified candidates have grounds for re-applying for adm ission to a faculty of m edicine and in recent years, repeat applicants have fared well. T he academ ically weaker candidates tend not to re-apply for adm ission to the sam e extent as do those who have a sound academ ic background.

Applying to Study M edicine Outside Canada If for any reason an applicant decides to seek adm ission to a m edical faculty outside Canada, som e im portant factors m ust be borne in m ind. The m ost im portant of these is that returning to practise m edicine in Canada m ay prove difficult. This is not m eant to deter individuals from seeking education in foreign universities som e Canadian citizens have always gone abroad to study in recognized, reputable universities. Lim itations on recognition of foreign earned MDs apply to qualifications earned abroad by citizens as well as by non-citizens of Canada. Strong m otivation, determ ination and adequate academ ic preparation are in them selves no guarantee that a Canadian citizen who attends a foreign m edical faculty will be able to train or practise m edicine in Canada in the future.

Foreign Applicants Not all faculties of m edicine accept applications from foreign students. Conversely, som e faculties of m edicine have contracts with foreign governm ents or institutions to accept applications for supernum erary positions. It is understood that the faculty of m edicine will be com pensated for the entire cost of m edical education, the student will not apply for post-MD (residency) training in Canada and these graduates will return to their countries of origin to practise m edicine. Inform ation about contract positions is available from the foreign educational institutions or governm ents that have negotiated such contracts. Foreign students planning to study m edicine in Canada are personally responsible for obtaining the necessary student authorization and student visa to enter Canada for the purpose of study. All m atters related to entering Canada m ust be taken up at the Canadian em bassy, High Com m ission or consulate nearest to the foreign applicant.
