Canadian Medical Schools


In Canada, a medical school is a faculty or school of a university that trains would-be medical doctors and physician assistants usually offering a 3- or 4-year Doctor of Medicine (M.D. or M.D.C.M.) degree and 2 year Physician Assistant degrees. Although presently most students enter medicine having previously earned another degree, the M.D. is technically considered an undergraduate degree in Canada.

There are a number of combined and/or accelerated MD programs in the U.S. Consult with your student advisor or an Ivy Global representative for more information.

Tips & Advice:
Email: use an address that is professional but also navigable (e.g., U of T Alumni email hosted by Gmail). Over the course of the 6 month application cycle, there will be many emails to keep track of, so being able to easily retrieve information from a particular email (e.g., ID and password) is helpful.
