7 Faculty of Medicine : 7.3 Programs of Study, Admission and Curriculum : 7.3.3 Admission Requirements and Procedures

The Faculty of Medicine at McGill University is committed to its mission of social accountability, including the recruitment and enrolment of a diverse student body and the delivery of a program of medical education that reflects the complexity and plurality of the public that our graduates will go on to serve as health professionals.
In addition to overseeing and assuring the fairness of the selection process for entry into medical school at McGill, the Office of Admissions is broadly responsible for the recruitment of talented individuals to our program, ensuring that this net is cast broadly across the communities we serve, and with attention to equitable representation of historically underrepresented groups within the medical school and the medical profession.
The Faculty of Medicine welcomes and encourages applications from students from all backgrounds, including students from underrepresented ethnic, cultural and racial groups, sexual minorities, and from all socio-economic backgrounds.
