Offers 2022 – Waitlist Shortened

By Admissions on August 9, 2022

The waitlist was shortened today. Although it’s never easy to receive disappointing news, we hope that being informed of the final decision on their application will help applicants who are no longer on the waitlist move on to their future plans. Waitlisted applicants who did not receive an application status update today are still on the waitlist. While there is a chance that a position will open up in the class, it is best for these applicants to think about their future plans as well. Permalink | No Comments

2022/2023 Application Cycle Open

By Admissions on June 17, 2022

The UBC MD Undergraduate Program Application is now OPEN! The application will close September 15, 2022 at 12:00 PM (noon) Pacific Time. The early application deadline is August 2, 2022 at 12:00 PM (noon) Pacific Time.

Early Application Deadline Explanation

Applicants who submit all required documents and fees by August 2, 2022 at 12:00 PM (noon) Pacific Time and who are invited to interview, will receive their interview invitations a day early. We inform applicants whether or not they have met the early deadline, so it can be a good way to receive confirmation that your application is complete in terms of the items that are required by the September 15 application deadline. If you find out that something is missing from your application (like a transcript that never arrived, or your proof of BC residency), you would hopefully have enough time to submit the missing item in time for the regular application deadline. Meeting the early deadline does not give you extra points or any other advantages in how your application is evaluated.

Black Student MD Admissions Pathway

We are excited to announce the launch of the Black Student MD Admissions Pathway. We encourage individuals who self-identify as Black, or multiracial and identify with their Black ancestry, to apply to the MD Undergraduate Program through this pathway. This new pathway will help to address the underrepresentation of Black physicians in British Columbia and any barriers that Black applicants may face during the admissions process.

Please visit our website to learn more about the Black Student Pathway, or contact our Team at BlackPathway.MD@ubc.ca.
