Hi My daughter is interested in pursuing Medicine. Currently we are in Doha, Qatar and she is in grade 10 In British school following National Curriculum for England. We plan to migrate to Canada hopefully by 2022. I understand in Quebec medical school there is no requirement for Pre-Med and she can have direct entry if her grades are good. So, I would really appreciate your insight on where her chances are high- If she completes her yr 12 here in Qatar with good grades or is it better to do her schooling in Quebec?

Hello Nishida! Thanks so much for your question! To be eligible to become a medical student, all applicants should have some college/undergrad education. There are some medical schools that do not require a full Bachelor's degree, but all medical schools in Canada require completion of some university credits. The number of required credits depends on the school. So your daughter will have to complete some undergraduate degree courses whether she chooses to apply to medical schools in Quebec or the rest of Canada. I hope this answers your question! Let me know if you need anything else!



Hi, The UdeM site only lists Grades,Casper, and MMI as requirements that I can see. Are there additional requirements? What about letters of reference or a personal statement?
