I plan on applying to McGill Pre-Med Program next year and I was wondering if taking the MCATs are a pre-requisite for this program.

They are a 4-year graduate medical school in Canada. 10 places are reserved for internationals every year. Requirements: GPA of 3.5+ (between at least a B+ to A- average all four years) and 30+ on the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test). You would also have to secure your own funds - tuition is around 30K per year. I hope that helps.

thank you for the reply scottish chap but is your advice intended for the USA, I am interested in applying to McGill in Montreal Quebec. I know that I will need to do an equivalence exam and then 2 more exams afterwards. I wonder if anyone knows if I can start the process before I have actually graduated...if anyone is reading this that is currently at McGill then I would very much like to hear from you!

Thank you

If you intend to apply to McGill as an international student, you will be made to sign a contractual agreement that states you will not be eligible to apply for a residency position in Canada. I know a couple of internationals who graduated with their MD from McGill, and they ultimately did their residency in the U.S. The Canadian equivalent pre-specialty board exams are the MCC QE parts 1 and 2.

Canada is notoriously difficult for foreign doctors to become licensed, though not impossible. Even Canadian citizens who attend medical school in the U.S. find it very hard to return. Again, the MCC QE parts 1 and 2 will be required for you as a foreign physician.

Hi. I'm a Quebec Resident (I was born in quebec), and i'm doing my undergrad in the US, so I will be applying as In province, right? Assuming that's correct, how many spots are open for In-state non Med-P applicants? And are those spots usually more competitive than the spots for Med-P? I have a mediocre GPA (3.7), and I'm expecting at least a 30 on the MCATs, which I will be taking next week (i've been averaging 33-35 on the practice tests). Do I really have a chance? My extracurriculars are wide. I've done a buttload of shadowing (a lot, I kid you not). I've also done volunteer time in a hospital, and am involved in a lot of extracurrics. So overall, do I have a decent shot? Or am I better off taking a year off (not really sure where that would get me. Canadian schools only care about undergrad grades...Is it over for me?)? Thanks
