How exciting! You are considering applying to the Rural Pre-Medicine program. We welcome your application and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
For admissions or application questions, contact RPM Admissions. For program questions, please contact Allyson Perrott, Chair of the RPM Admissions Committee.
The first round of offers for September 2017 has already been made. Further applications are welcome, however; qualified applicants will be placed on a ranked wait list.
The Rural Pre-Medicine program uses a continuous intake model. This means that outstanding individuals who submit their applications before the final deadline will be offered seats in the program early. It is to your advantage to apply well before the final deadline! Although seats are initially filled based on complete applications received by March 31, occasionally seats become available after that date. An application received after March 31 will be reviewed, and qualified applicants will be placed on a wait list.
Admission to the Rural Pre-Medicine program is competitive. A student meeting all the admission requirements will be included in the pool of qualified applicants, but only a limited number of such qualified applicants will be admitted into the program.
