University Of Saskatchewan Medical School Admission Requirements

Selection Factors & Academic Criteria

University Of Saskatchewan

The number of year one positions available for admission in the fall of 2017 is expected to be 100 which includes up to 10 positions available to Aboriginal applicants and 10 positions available to out-of province applicants.

Applicants must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident.

Two years full-time university/college are required.

Saskatchewan Residents (including applicants eligible to apply through the Aboriginal Admissions Program):

There are two main academic requirements that must be met in order to apply as a Saskatchewan resident: MCAT and a 4-year Baccalaureate degree awarded prior to entering Medicine.

MCAT scores must be obtained in one sitting prior to the application deadline. The earliest accepted scores for 2017 entry are 2013 and only the most recent score will be considered. Prerequisite courses are not required.

To meet the second mandatory requirement, a 4-year Baccalaureate degree must be completed prior to entering Medicine (requirements completed by the end of April) and in < 60 months since starting university. Students may apply in the final year of that degree or once it is completed. The minimum acceptable university academic average (UAA) is 75%. All university courses completed as of the end of December following application will be used in the UAA calculation for admission purposes. Although courses completed in the calendar year following application will not be used in calculating a UAA for admission purposes, these final courses must average ≥ 75%. If a 4-year degree has been awarded prior to application, the UAA will be calculated on the most recent 120 CU completed, provided they were completed within a period spanning < 60 months.

Out-of-Province Residents: There are two main academic requirements that must be met in order to apply as an out-of-province resident: MCAT and a 4-year Baccalaureate degree.

MCAT scores must be obtained in one sitting prior to the application deadline. The earliest accepted scores for 2017 entry are 2013 and only the most recent score will be considered. Prerequisite courses are not required.

Application by out-of-province applicants can be made only during or after the final year of a four year degree. If a four year degree is completed prior to application, course-work for the degree must have been started within the 60 months prior to completion of the degree. If applicants are in the final year of a four year degree, a minimum of 90 credit units must have been completed in the 48 months prior to the end of August immediately before application. All courses completed at the date of application will be used for calculation of the university academic average (UAA). The minimum UAA required for application will be 83.0%. The four year degree must be completed prior to entering medicine (requirements completed by the end of April). All remaining courses complete for the degree after the date of application must minimally average 83.0%.
