What will I learn?

Medical doctors are responsible for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. The University of Winnipeg is an excellent place to fulfil the admission requirements for medicine at the University of Manitoba or other universities across Canada.

YOUR EDUCATION

Years 1-3: Pre-Medicine at The University of Winnipeg • Every faculty of medicine has its own entrance requirements. You must consult with the school where you plan to complete your medical studies to ensure you choose an appropriate set of courses. • To meet the entrance requirements for medicine at the University of Manitoba, you must complete a three-year (90 credit hour) degree and satisfy the “Pre-Professional Requirements”- see below. • You will graduate from UWinnipeg with a bachelor’s degree. While there are recommended areas of study, there is no one degree or program that is required for entry to medicine.

Years 4-7+: Professional Studies: Medicine • After you complete your pre-professional studies at UWinnipeg, you will apply for admission to the faculty of medicine at another university. • Enrolment in medical programs is limited, and only highly qualified applicants are chosen. Admission to medicine is based on an outstanding academic record as well as performance on the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), the Computer-based Assessment for Sampling Personal characteristics (CASPer); and in a Multiple Mini Interview (MMI). • A minimum of three additional years of study is required (four at the University of Manitoba). Once you have finished your degree requirements, you will complete a residency that will take two or more years, depending on your specialty.
