MCAT Fee Assistance Program for Canadians

By Admissions on November 1, 2017

A new MCAT Fee Assistance Program for Canadians is coming soon. This pilot program will enable Canadian students who demonstrate financial need to receive reduced MCAT scheduling, rescheduling, and cancellation fees. Students will submit financial information to the Association of Faculties of Medicine in Canada (AFMC), who will determine which students are in greatest need of the funds. AFMC will identify these students to the AAMC through their AAMC ID numbers only, so no information will be passed on to the individual medical schools.

We hope this program can bring the MCAT within reach of applicants facing financial barriers. Details are still a bit sparse, but if you are interested in this program, please check out the information posted on the AAMC and AFMC websites. Unfortunately, the Admissions Office does not administer this program and we do not have any additional information beyond what is available on the AAMC and AFMC websites, but we will pass along any updates we receive.

Online Information Session

By Admissions on August 23, 2017

We are excited to announce that in addition to in-person information sessions, MD Admissions will now offer online information sessions and you are invited to participate! Our first online information session will be on August 30th, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Similar to our in-person sessions, these hour-long webinars will provide you with some information about the admissions process and will give you the opportunity to interact with admissions staff members. We hope this will give those of you who live far away the chance to attend a session and gather the information you need to apply to our MD Program.

Because this is our first offering, we will host a maximum of 20 participants. More online sessions will be available later in the fall.

If you are interested in attending, please sign up on the Information Sessions page of our website. The information gathered in the registration form is for statistical purposes only; it will help us know who we are reaching and how we can better tailor our sessions to meet participant needs. Your information will not be connected to your application or used for solicitation. Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email. This email will provide you with the link to the webinar and will contain additional information on how to set up your computer for the session. These instructions can also be found on our website on the Information Sessions page.

You do not need a microphone or webcam to connect to the webinar.

We hope to see you online soon!
