The MD/PhD Program selects applicants with demonstrated academic excellence, evidence of sustained and productive research experience, and strong potential to become a physician scientist. Applicants to the MD/PhD program must meet all of the MD Program admission requirements. There are different academic requirements depending on your educational background:
- undergraduate applicants
- graduate applicants
- internationally educated applicants
In addition, you must also satisfy the MD non-academic requirements.
All students accepted into the program receive financial support of $32,000 CAD per year, regardless of nationality. As an international student, you will pay international fees. This annual fee is blended, and adds up to the total cost of four years of medical school, plus the tuition for four years of PHD, divided by eight (the minimum number of years of the program). Your tuition remains the same for all years that you are in the program.
