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.

Our medical doctors will comprehensively review your education credentials, employment experience, research endeavours, extra-curricular activities and community contributions. Once we establish an understanding of your current pre-medical candidate profile, we then adopt an evidence-based strategy to carefully craft an action plan towards medical school acceptance. Factoring in all essential variables, we outline a comprehensive plan on how to make you succeed in pursuing your passion for medicine.

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”.”

Success Stories

Roxana M

McGill Medicine (MD)

"MedApplications helped me with both my essay preparation which brought me to the big interview and with interview preparation. MedApplication's services provided me with not only an insight of how to tailor an application to bring out the best of my ability but it also gave me the confidence I needed to survive the MMIs.

Jess B

Accepted to UWO Medicine (MD/PhD)

"I enrolled with Med Applications one month before my first interview. I had been preparing for interviews by reading books and discussing questions with friends and family, but I was still nervous and didn’t really know what to expect. I felt so much more comfortable after my session with MedApplications. My instructor was very knowledgeable and catered the session to what I needed work on (as I had both panel and MMI interviews, this was particularly beneficial). It was very useful to cover topics with someone who knew what to expect from an interview and could comment on the quality of my answers. All together the experience was extremely helpful and very reassuring; it significantly calmed my nerves during my interviews. There weren’t any questions I was surprised by in my interviews. I would definitely recommend a session for future students."

K. Y.

O uf T, UBC, McMaster

"I used MedApplications mock interview service because I wanted to practice and receive feedback from a current medical student. I found the mock interview helpful in identifying weaknesses in my answers and improving on them to make them stand out. I would recommend MedApplications to anyone who wants extra preparation to gain confidence for medical school interviews."


U of A

"I went into my first MedApplications session without a clue about what MMI's were or how to prepare for them. After meeting and practising with Eric and Kent, however, I learned all of the tips and skills I needed to ace the interview. They were incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging and their help gave me that extra boost of confidence on interview day. Thanks MedApplications!"

Hana W

University of Ottawa Medicine

“I was accepted at Ottawa which was my ideal school and my only interview. Josh was absolutely wonderful and definitely part of my success! He was very helpful throughout the entire process 🙂


Mother of a High School student for a Pre-Med program

"Hi MedApplications, just to let you know that Isabelle got an offer from University of London St. George’s College. The competition this year was quite challenging. We would like to thank you and Sarah for your contribution to this achievement. Your services are excellent. Please count us among satisfied clients.”

Matthew L.

McMaster University Medicine

"I used the MedApplications seminar and mock interview services before I had my interviews at Queen's and McMaster medical schools, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Their seminars were incredibly helpful in providing information about the interview process and ways to truly emphasize your best qualities in an interview. Their mock interview session was great as well as it gave me an opportunity to practice my interviewing style with a current medical student! If you are looking for a way to prepare for an interview as important as the ones for medical school, I would definitely recommend MedApplications."
