Welcome to the UBC Faculty of Medicine MD Undergraduate Program Admissions

The Doctor of Medicine Undergraduate Program at UBC’s Faculty of Medicine prepares students to meet the health challenges of tomorrow. Our learners receive the training necessary for a career founded on evidence-based practice, critical reflection, lifelong learning, and an ability to deliver care in a professional manner. We believe these skills will enable our graduates to transform the communities they serve and improve the health of the BC population and beyond.

I chose the MD Undergraduate at UBC because I was inspired by the opportunity to push myself both professionally and personally while doing something meaningful and fulfilling. I am excited to return to Northern BC Indigenous communities and provide culturally safe care.

Tarissa Alec from Prince George began the MD program in 2015
