Information Sessions

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will only be offering virtual information sessions on the dates provided below.

Virtual information sessions are free to attend and will typically include a short Q&A period at the end of each presentation. Please RSVP by filling out the survey linked next to the date you wish to attend. You will receive a confirmation email after successfully registering for a virtual session, with a link to access the session.

Please keep an eye out for information sessions that specifically cover or relate to the various aspects of the application process (e.g. NAQ and AQ). Please be sure to sign-up for the specific information sessions you are interested in. Questions concerning topics covered in other information sessions should be reserved for those presentations.
Please be considerate to all participants and sign into the session on time. Dates are subject to change.

Advising Information

Our General inquiries phone line is temporarily closed. Please contact us by email. Our email is posted on the Contact Us page of the website.

Unfortunately, the admissions office is unable to provide one-on-one advising. Please consider attending one of our online information sessions. If a prospective applicant is unable to find an answer to their question(s) after reading our website, they may send an email to the admissions office at admissions.md@ubc.ca. Note: This email address is for general inquiries only. All questions regarding the current online application must be sent via the online application system.

Please note the MD Undergraduate Admissions office does not offer feedback advising to applicants. 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 or Interim 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.
