Sherbrooke is comprised of two Universities and three colleges making it very student-friendly. In fact, of the 150,000 people that make up the community, 20% of Sherbrooke's population are students. Established in 1961, the Université de Sherbrooke's Faculty of Medicine MD Program is instructed in French only. In addition to meeting the French language proficiency requirements, successful students must hold a diploma of college studies (DEC) or equivalent before school starts, or they must have "at least 60 credits within the same program of 1st university degree and 90 credits for the same program before school starts." Each year, approximately 2800 students compete for 100 interviews and roughly 205 spots in the MD program. Of the 205 matriculants, 83% are Quebec residents.
Enracinée dans les communautés où elle s'engage et évolue, la Faculté de médecine et des sciences de la santé a pour mission la formation, la recherche et le partage des connaissances, en favorisant la pensée critique et créative, dans le but d'améliorer la santé et le bien-être des personnes et des populations.
