"The Admissions Committee gives priority to residents of Manitoba who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents regardless of where they completed their premedical studies. The University of Manitoba defines Manitoba applicants as those who:
have graduated from a Manitoba high school; or
have a recognized degree from a university in Manitoba; or
have completed a minimum of two consecutive years of full-time academic studies in a recognized program at a university in Manitoba, while physically residing in Manitoba; or
have been a resident in the Province of Manitoba for a minimum of two (2) years following high school graduation; the two year residence period will not be considered broken where the Admissions Committee is satisfied that the applicant was temporarily out of the province on vacation, in short-term volunteer work or employment, or as a full time student."
