Non-Traditional Medical Applicants
Applying to medical school as a non-traditional or mature applicant has become more mainstream as Canadian medical schools and American medical schools have adopted Non-Traditional medical student pathways to welcome students with rich life and career experience in healthcare and non-healthcare related sectors. For many years, MedApplications™ has successfully assisted mature pre-medical applicants in diverse careers ranging from, teaching, engineering, kinesiology, nursing, finance, business and many other leading careers.
Many non-traditional medical school applicants as themselves, “can I apply to medical school this far from university?”, “is it possible to even pursue medicine at my age?”, “what requirements are there to apply to medical school?”, “is it too late?”. At MedApplications™ our medical doctors specialize in assisting non-traditional medical school applicants with career changes towards medicine. We work closely with you to analyze your current career profile and outline the steps necessary to pursue a career in medicine.
“According to a perspective publication in the New England Journal of Medicine (http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp0802264#t=article) the mean age of first-year medical students roughly 24 years old, with approximately 10% who are 27 years or older. However, nowadays, medical schools in Canada and the United States routines admit pre-medical students in their 30s or 40s with well-established families and careers who are now interested in pursuing their passion for medicine. In general, Non-Traditional Medical students or “mature students” bring maturity, diversity, broader perspectives and valued “life experience”.”
