Western Canada Application

Specializing in Rural Medicine

The Western Canadian medical school application includes medical school applications to: University of Alberta Medical School (UofA Medicine), University of Calgary Medical School (UofC Medicine, Cumming School of Medicine), University of British Columbia Medical School (UBC Medicine), University of Manitoba Medical School (UofM Medicine) and University of Saskatchewan Medicine.

Alberta Medical School (UofA Medicine), University of Calgary Medical School (UofC Medicine) and the University of British Columbia Medical School (UBC Medicine) have a rigorous medical school application component which is one of the most important aspects of the pre-interview ranking score. For many applicants from Alberta or British Columbia, the written medical school application is the distinguishing component of their applicant profile. For in-province applications, Alberta Medical School (UofA Medicine), University of Calgary Medical School (UofC Medicine, Cumming School of Medicine) and the University of British Columbia Medical School (UBC Medicine) has reduced the overall GPA and MCAT criteria to promote medical trainees to stay within province, and specifically, practice in rural areas. While this is a significant advantage for BC and Alberta residents, competitive Out-of-Province applicants find it very challenging to secure interview invites.

The benefit of how the BC and Alberta medical school applications are structured is the significant emphasis placed on being able to showcase your accomplishments, extra-curricular, volunteer and employment endeavours. At MedApplications, our medical specialists take advantage of this opportunity and work closely with you to make your medical school application shine.

Our Application Process

Our evidence-based Alberta Medical School (UofA Medicine), University of Calgary Medical School (UofC Medicine, Cumming School of Medicine) and the University of British Columbia Medical School (UBC Medicine) application program starts with an introductory 30-minute live consultation with a Western Canadian medical doctor. You begin with creating a strategy to address the various Western Canadian application components. Our medical doctors assist you with creating your Personal Narrative, CV or Activities List to best highlight your strong-suits. We ensure that your medical school application entries mirror the overall goals, objectives and mission statements of the Western Canadian medical schools.

During the initial medical consultation, we aim to give you an in-depth perspective on life as a medical student at the University of Alberta Medical School (UofA Medicine), University of Calgary Medical School (UofC Medicine) and the University of British Columbia Medical School (UBC Medicine). Our medical doctors will walk you through the entire application process from beginning to end. Our main focus during this introductory session is to give you the tools to successfully tackle the Western Canadian medical school application.

Following the introductory consultation, we work with you to develop competitive Personal Narratives, experience lists or CV entries. Once you feel that you have the confidence to take on the medical school application, we perform an unlimited number of revisions for all medical school application documents until both you and your medical consultant are satisfied. We support you via electronic communications and can arrange for additional flexible consultation sessions to accommodate your schedule.

As practicing physicians in Western Canada, and in rural areas throughout Canada, we offer a unique perspective as clinicians in reviewing your successful medical school application. We will work with you to achieve our objective of securing a medical school interview.

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."

Jenny

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 🙂

Anna

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."
