Non-Traditional Medical School Applicants

Competitiveness Review Phase 1

Making a career change towards medicine is an exciting yet challenging decision facing many professionals interested in becoming a doctor. Many mature medical school applicants bring a wealth of personal and career experience that is well suited to the successful practice of medicine. However, the ever changing landscape of medical school poses significant challenges in gaining medical school acceptance. While life and professional career experiences are important, there is an inherent strategy and evidence based approach our medical doctors at MedApplications™ utilize to enhance your likelihood at success.

Our medical doctors take a comprehensive approach in establishing whether pursuing medicine is a real possibility given your academic and non-academic criteria. We cast a broad net in evaluating your eligibility within Canadian medical schools, American medical schools and International medical schools.

One of the most important questions mature applicants ask us is “Am I a competitive medical school applicant?”. Our Competitiveness review program is intended to answer this key questions. While many applicants feel their life and career experience is directly translatable to the field of medicine, it is important to rigorously review all academic and non-academic criteria according to the lens of a medical school admissions committee.
We carefully review medical school options in the United States, Canada and Internationally to ensure you are aware of all possibilities. We then work with you to choose specific medical schools based on your Resume, GPA and MCAT score to ensure a high likelihood of success. Based on our assessment, you receive a customize competitiveness report and recommendations for application.

McGill Notes That….

“Successful NTP applicants will be admitted to a Qualifying Year (QY) to be undertaken chiefly in the Faculty of Science. NTP students in the QY Year must maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5, with no grades lower than a B in order to continue on into the 4-year M.D.,C.M. program. Non Traditional Pathway candidates who have received an offer of admission and who seek an exemption from the QY can choose to submit an MCAT score (2015 exam or later) with a min 70%tile score on each of the 4 sections, or update all their prerequisites (either at CEGEP, university, or through a distance education university program).”
