Admissions Statistics

Admission to the MD Undergraduate program is very competitive and each year there are more applicants than available seats in the incoming class. We encourage you to review these detailed statistics we collect each year and compare your profiles.

To be as transparent as possible about our admission decisions and results, we publish detailed statistics about who has been admitted to our MD Undergraduate Program.

Age, gender, prior academic institutions including high school, college or university and training completed before admittance to the program are all reported. Academic standings, including OGPA and AGPA of both accepted and refused applicants, can be found in our yearly reports and whether applicants were a BC resident or out-of-province.

Meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to the program and not all qualified applicants will be offered admission. However, qualified candidates who are not admitted are welcome to reapply in any subsequent year.
