Welcome to our medical school! Our school is known to be innovative and leading edge. We are proud of the quality of physician we produce.
Notwithstanding our reputation for having a relevant and modern curriculum we are just as proud of how we perform using more traditional metrics. For instance our school enjoys full accreditation status from the same body that accredits medical schools like Harvard and Johns Hopkins. We are presently considered fully compliant with the 130 rigorous educational standards. We received full accreditation at our last visit (2008) without the need for follow-up visits that other schools have been required to do. Our graduates' pass rate on both parts of the national Medical Council of Canada exams is one of the best in the country. Once graduated, our students match to the specialty programs of their choice with the same success as other medical schools. And all of this in three years! As I think you can see, we are very proud of our program.
