Pre-Med and MD Programs
Queen’s University College of Medicine offers two Medical Programs designed to meet the varied needs of students who wish to become doctors:
1) A 4-year Program for those who have a college degree AND have satisfied the pre-med requirements.
2) A 5.5-year Program for International students who have graduated from high school and who wish to complete pre-med as part of their path to medical school. In addition, Queen's University College of Medicine offers an Accelerated Review designed for students aiming to become successful physicians who are in need of additional study skills and academic support to ensure their success in our QUCOM medical education Programs.
The 4-year Program begins with the Basic Sciences Curriculum which spans Five (5) 15-week semesters. Once a student passes the USMLE Step 1, he/she may start the Clinical Science Curriculum. The Clinical Science Curriculum includes a series of core clinical classes as well as electives.
The Basic Sciences Curriculum involves Five (5) Semesters of Medical Science Curricula in combination with a variety of courses covering Clinical Medicine.
The Clinical Science Curriculum is designed to provide students with the proper knowledge and skills pertaining to training in clinical skills, patient contact, and medical practice.
The Accelerated Review is designed for students aiming to become successful physicians who are in need of additional study skills and academic support to ensure their success in medical education programs.
The Goals of Accelerated Review include:
Increasing student confidence in their ability to be successful academically
Assisting students with the proper study skills to complete our Queen’s University College of Medicine medical education program
Providing students with exposure to targeted courses
Reducing attrition rates once students enter our QUCOM medical school program
Queen's University College of Medicine's teaching philosophy is to work with every student who may have an academic deficiency. Our goal is to give every student every opportunity to use our remedial resources to overcome any deficiency.
An academic advisor will meet with you to discuss your prior educational history and goals for your future. Both the 4-year Program and 5.5-year Program include a course each semester in Medicine and Spirituality which is designed to foster a high standard of values and ethics in our future physicians.
Our faculty will work closely with you to ensure you are prepared for standardized exams and governed requirements.
