Academic Requirements

The Admissions Committee, will evaluate an applicant’s capacity to do academic work within the Medical Program and will assess all student applicants. Evaluation is carried out on Grade Point Averages (GPA) from individual colleges and universities, MCAT (if taken) and letters of recommendation. However, academic background is not the main criterion for selection. Individual character and motivation to become a physician are essential determinants for admission.

• One Year of English Study
