  1. Hello Ambassadors,

    Does it look bad to the Mcgill admission if I complete a second bac degree ? What about a third degree ?

    Is some program is better than an other ? Example, does bac psychology major have less quota than bac biochem?

    Thanks !

      It doesn't look bad at all! Many are in the same situation as you. Also, the nature of your degree does not matter as long as you satisfy the pre-reqs.

      Okai thank you  !

  2. Hello ambassadors!

    Im currently in the dietetics program here at mcgill and I was wondering if I was eligible to apply during my third year. The dietetics program is a 3.5 years long program with around 115 credits (after cegep), which means if I were to apply in my 3rd year, I wouldnt actually detain my degree for the fall med admissions. 

    Do you absolutely need to obtain a degree if you apply after cegep? Could i be admitted into mcgill med if I still had 15 credits left to my bachelors?

      Just to be more precise, normally people applying during their bachelors would be accepted into med with their completed bachelors degree. If I were to apply and be accepted, I would still be missing 15-20 credits and therefore not have a completed bachelors degree (we have a lot of credits because of stages during the summers).

  3. Bonjour,

    Il me manque 1 cours laboratoire de physique pour satisfaire aux préalables de médecine à Mcgill:

    j'aimerais savoir s'il y a des universités ou CÉGEPs qui offrent seulement le cours de laboratoire de physique soit pour électricité et magnétisme ou ondes et physique moderne.J'ai fais les cours théoriques et il me manque seulement la composante laboratoire à faire.

    Merci beaucoup !

  4. Hi there, At this time, there is a lot of uncertainly and we don't know much. It is likely to be primarily remotely and some clinical activities might be held in person but this is subject to many different factors. Make sure to keep up with the emails sent out by the faculty to stay in the loop! Congratulations on your admission and welcome to the McGill Medicine Fam!
  5. Hi! Most of TCP will be either in outpatient clinic (peds and fam med for example) or in hospital for the rest. Most of the rotations are 2 weeks, except for IM which is about 6 weeks. You do get academic half days were students attend lectures. Those are usually held in hospital and sometimes on campus. The goal of TCP is mainly to have you familiarize yourself with the hospital environment and get comfortable with completing a history and a physical as well as learning the basics about building a differential diagnosis. In most of your rotations you'll also learn how to write notes
  6. Hey, usually gets created a few weeks after the admissions get sent out so you should expect it soon enough!
  7. Hello, once you enter the MD program, the is no more GPA per say that will appear on your transcript because all courses are evaluated on a pass/fail basis. However, the faculty does keep track of individual mark for prizes, deans honour list etc.. Your med-P GPA will still show on your official transcript though (just like it would show for undergrad students who completed their degree at McGill).
  8. Last year, the last exam med1s wrote was on Dec 15. This is subject to change and you shouldn't really make any travel arrangements before you get your final schedule on myMDCM (the platform that is used by the faculty).
  9. Hi Silverstream, it may sound silly but you will only have a chance if you actually apply. You stats seem competitive and there are Americans in our classes. Give it a shot and you'll see what happens!
  10. Please refer to my other post as I forgot to quote your initial message.
  11. Hi cacaonibs, Exams often fall on Fridays. You should contact the faculty to know if they can send you a tentative schedule. Best!
  12. Hi Student 1255, There are multiple ways to find someone to shadow. If you have a specific discipline in mind (e.g. radiology), you could contact the elective coordinator for radiology at McGill, and they can guide you towards a specific person to shadow.
  13. Hi, This is probably going to sound boring to you, but you should choose the program that best suits your own preferences. There is no better way to get accepted than staying true to your own values and picking a program that best represents your personality and ambition. There is no rule set in stone, and you can get into Mcgill Med from many different programs. I, for example, did health sciences at a small Cegep outside of Montreal, and they never questioned my training. Hope this helps!
  14. Hi, the most effective way would be to do it through the McGill Student Health Clinic. The nurses all know the requirements for students and will be best equipped to help you. That said, it can be challenging to make an appointment with the clinic - make sure you specify that you are an incoming medical student, as they sometimes have allocated times dedicated to med students. If this doesn't work, you can also have the forms filled out by a nurse at a CLSC.
