Requirement (New) Dalhousie Medical School

For the new Dalhousie Medical School 2017-2018 application cycle, all pre-medical applicants to Dalhousie’s Undergraduate Medical Education program are required to complete the mandatory 90-minute computer-based test (CASPer®).

CASPer® test is an online assessment tool used by medical school admissions committees to assist in the selection process. Pre-Medical candidates who successfully complete CASPer® may improve their overall interview pre-ranking score. CASPer® is mandatory in order to maintain medical school admission eligibility.

CASPer® assesses for non-cognitive skills and interpersonal characteristics. Dalhousie medical school states that these skills are essential for successful medical students and graduate of the Dalhousie medical program. CASPer® is seen to complement additional medical school applicant screening tools. In implementing CASPer®, Dalhousie Medical School aims to try and further create a fair, transparent and objective medical school admissions process.
