Admissions 2014/2015

Update regarding 2015-2016 Information Session 

Dr. Ian Walker, Director of Admissions, will present two information sessions in July, 2015; each will be directed to a different audience.    On July 6th, the presentation will focus on “regular” applicants; on July 22nd, the session will be aimed at mature applicants and/or those considering a career change.    Both sessions will begin at 6 pm in the Libin Theatre in the Cumming School of Medicine (map link).   Interested individuals are welcome to attend either or both but questions relating to career change will only be addressed on July 22nd

Both sessions will be podcast and posted on our website shortly after they take place.
