Our Program

OUR MD PROGRAM

The Graduate MED MD program is simple and designed to allow students to enter with the specific goal of practicing medicine in Canada and the USA and achieve that goal in 10 years. Ideally, an 18-year-old high school graduate, freshman or sophomore in college can elect to forego a traditional liberal arts Bachelors and enter directly into our six-year Graduate MED MD program. After completion of this six-year MD, students will have passed the US and Canadian Residency qualification exams, allowing them to apply in three different countries for Residency. A unique advantage of the Graduate MED pathway is our ability to place you in high-quality clinical electives in the US and Canada.
