Admissions

Please note that in 2019 the Undergraduate Medical Education Program looks forward to holding the first full day of classes on Monday, August 12. 

As a result of this planned change in start-date, students will immediately have a more substantial opportunity to transition into the McMaster University’s problem-based learning environment, to understand the competencies learners develop during their undergraduate medical training, and to begin exploring the breadth that their professional role will encompass.  Later in the curriculum, this planned change in start date enables students to benefit from breaks in learning and to focus on their residency interviews and clerkship rotations sequentially rather than concurrently. 

Taken collectively, the curricular changes planned to take effect in 2019 aim to help medical students more effectively build, consolidate, and integrate their knowledge and skills, thus offering an opportunity to enhance students’ clinical transfer, increase student readiness for clerkship, and improve student performance on licensure examinations.  Graduates will embark on their professional journey with greater capability to provide responsive and dynamic patient-centered care.  

OPEN SESSIONS FOR THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN APPLYING TO THE MICHAEL G. DEGROOTE SCHOOL OF MEDICINE ARE HELD ANNUALLY, IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE OPENING OF THE NEW ADMISSIONS CYCLE.


The information sessions for the 2018/19 application cycle have been completed.  Sessions for the 2019/20 application cycle will be posted here in the Spring.  The sessions in 2018 were held June 7, June 18 and June 21, 2018.
