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 2013-2014 academic year are now available here.
Applicants will need to submit an online application for admittance to the program by April 26, 2013. The online application includes an autobiographical sketch and statement of interest.

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.
Letter of Reference
In addtion to the online application, applicants must submit a Letter of Reference by April 26. Applicants are expected to choose appropriate referees to complete a confidential reference letter. 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.
