Applying to medical school is one of the most important steps in becoming a physician. In Canada, there are 17 faculties of medicine and each one has its own admissions profile when it comes to basic requirements, quotas and success rate. To help students interested in pursuing medical studies navigate the Canadian landscape, the AFMC Data and Analysis team publishes the Admission Requirements of Canadian Faculties of Medicine annually.
