Medicine USA/Canada - UrgentWatch
I have a few queries in mind; I would really appreciate it if anyone could answer
I am in the UK and I have done AS levels in: Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Psychology - with the consideration of doing Further Maths next year
I have decided in the future I would like to live in the USA or Canada,
I know that to study this in America or Canada , you need to do an undergraduate degree in a science related subject before applying
I was just wondering how UK students can apply to universities in America or Canada?
I know it's quite competitive, but if someone could explain the whole process to me, it will be incredibly helpful
Medical school in Canada is highly competitive, twice as competitive as in the UK and the vast majority of spots are for Canadian citizens. You would be taking a huge risk to do undergrad in Canada with almost no hope of landing a Canadian medical school spot. Only University of Toronto, McGill, McMaster and Dalhousie even accept internationals.
Medical school in the US is also competitive for internationals and you'd need to do an expensive US undergrad to have a shot.
Sorry to burst your bubble but there is almost no way you are going to end up in Canada or the US as a doctor until at least 24 for the US and possibly 28-30 for Canada.
