Description The Faculty of Medicine offers a special program for immediate graduates of the Quebec Collegial (CEGEP) system, that combines one year of Science curriculum followed with the standard four-year MDCM program. The preparatory year will involve courses in molecular biology, cell biology and metabolism, organic chemistry (where applicable), along with a selection in fields like computer science, intermediate chemistry, physiology, and mathematics. Students will also be required to take courses in the Humanities, and Social Sciences along with electives of their choosing. Students of this MED-P program are expected to maintain a high average throughout their preparatory year in order to continue into the MDCM program. All campus-wide services including student advising, tutorship, financial or academic aid are available to Med-P students. In the first year of the Med-P program students are registered in the Faculty of Science. In addition to completing the specific requirements for entry into the M.D.,C.M. program, they must take a number of optional courses selected for the purpose of broadening and enriching their education. Following the successful completion of this year, those students with a CGPA of at least 3.5 and no grades less than B in the compulsory courses have their acceptance confirmed into the first year of the M.D.,C.M. program.
