Canadian Applicants

Canada faces a growing shortage of physicians. Each year more than 14,000 applicants apply for approximately 2,900 seats at 17 medical schools in Canada. Due to this, many qualified students are denied entrance to medical schools each year. Queen’s University College of Medicine (QUCOM) provides an opportunity to these qualified Canadian students to study medicine. The curriculum at QUCOM aims to prepare students for the Medical Council of Canada Evaluation Exam (MCCEE), the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Exam (MCCQE), and the National Assessment Collaboration Objective Structured Clinical Examination (NAC-OSCE)Canadian students attending QUCOM qualify to apply for Residency Programs in both Canada and the United States and may sit for Licensure Exams in Canada and the United States. The Application Process for Canadian students is same as that for American students. Prospective students must meet all of the Admissions Requirements outlined by the University. QUCOM is committed to making medical education affordable for its students. Canadian applicants may fund their medical education through an Education Line of Credit loan from various Canadian Banks. These lines of credit are specifically designed to fund the cost associated with student’s medical education and are based on credit score. Currently, Queen’s University College of Medicine does not qualify for the Canada Student Loan Program. In accordance with the rules and regulations of Canada Student Loan Program, a medical school must be in operation for ten-years before it may qualify for the Canada Student Loan Program.
