Admission Requirements & Applications


Academic Eligibility

Those applicants submitting an application during Grade Twelve must have maintained an 80% academic average during Grade Eleven and Grade Twelve.

Those applicants submitting an application during the course of their University Degree must have maintained a minimum 80% academic average in their most recently completed two years of education. 

While an overall simple average of 80% meets the minimal criterion for consideration of admission, prospective applicants should be aware that given the rapidly rising level of competition for a limited number of positions, a significantly higher academic average would provide the applicant with a more likely chance of admission. The Admissions Committee may nullify an admission or revoke registration if it finds that an applicant has not met this minimum requirement.


Applications for the 2016/2017 Med Plus season are now OPEN!

Applications were due by April 30, 2016.
There are 3 steps to the application process:
  1. Complete the online application, which includes providing the name and email of a reference
  2. Submit your academic transcript or give us permission on the application to check your transcript electronically
  3. The Letter of Reference form must be received directly from your reference

Online Application
As part of your online application, you will be asked to provide information about your current academic standing, and provide an autobiographical sketch and a statement of interest.

Autobiographical Sketch
The autobiographical sketch should be an inclusive list of the pertinent details of an applicant’s activities since age 14, within the following categories:
  • Employment

  • Volunteer activities

  • Extracurricular activities

  • Awards and accomplishments

  • Other

Applicants are advised to list a maximum of 10 activities that will give the admissions committee insight into who they are. Applicants should include experiences that demonstrate an ability to determine needs in their community and a willingness to play a part in filling those needs.

Statement of Interest
As part of the application process, applicants are required to submit answers, in less than 250 words, to the following questions:
  • What areas of healthcare and/or medicine are you currently interested in pursuing and why?

  • What are your goals in Med Plus? How do you see Med Plus benefiting you and your future career?

  • What qualities, strengths and experience will you bring to Med Plus?

Applicants should be aware that the same reader may not be scoring all of the questions and therefore they should answer each question as an individual question and not build upon previous responses.


As a part of the online application, you can give the Med Plus Admissions Committee permission to access your transcript online, which you have already submitted to the Brock University Registrar's office as part of your application to Brock University. If you do not want the admission committee to view your marks online; a hard copy of your transcript must be sent in for review.

Hard copy transcripts must be sent to:

Attn: Med Plus Coordinator
Career Services, ST119
500 Glenridge Ave
St. Catharines ON L2S 3A1

and must be received by the application deadline.

Letter of Reference

As part of the online application, applicants must submit the name and email address of a reference. Once you have submitted your online application, we will email your referee directly and provide them with a Letter of Reference form to complete and return to Med Plus before the application deadline.

Applicants are expected to choose an appropriate referee to complete this form. Assessments must be completed in confidence by the referee and should not be made available to the applicant. Referees should have extensive personal knowledge of the applicant and be in a position to reasonably make statements about the applicant’s character, personal qualities, academic capabilities and suitability for the Med Plus program. It is recognized that referees may not be in a position to evaluate all of the characteristics requested; however, applicants should ensure that, in choosing their referee, most subject areas are covered.
