Information Sessions

We recognize these are unusual times in education and want to provide all those interested in learning more about the UBC MD Undergraduate Program an opportunity to attend our virtual information sessions. These sessions are free to attend.

Each session will focus on specific topics so we can thoroughly cover a particular subject and take questions following the presentation. We will offer general information sessions and additional sessions covering topics such as academic qualifications, non-academic qualifications, and Indigenous and Northern and Rural Pathways. New information sessions dates are posted regularly. Keep an eye on the schedule and be sure to join us for a discussion and have your questions answered by the MD Admissions Team.

Advising Information for Applicants

Unfortunately, the admissions office is unable to provide one-on-one advising and our general inquiries phone line is temporarily closed. Unsuccessful applicants (ineligible applicants, applicants who are not invited for an interview, applicants who are interviewed, but do not receive an offer and waitlisted applicants who have been removed from the waitlist) receive information on the academic, non-academic and interview portions of their application (if applicable).

Applicants are encouraged to evaluate their individual scores against the posted Admissions Statistics in order to identify their strengths and weaknesses in comparison to the applicant pool and accepted applicants. The admissions office will not provide any further details or specifics regarding the results of any file evaluation for unsuccessful applicants.
