My Answers to some common Premed Questions
Last edited July 31, 2001


I must mention that a major reason I am able to study in Canada, is that I was born here, and therefore am a Canadian citizen.

If you do not hold Canadian citizenship, it is extremely difficult to enter medical school here. The reason is that the Canadian government and its tax-payers pay for most of the cost of medical education in Canada. As a result, most students who are selected are Canadian citizens. In fact, at my school, it is mandatory to be a Canadian citizen before you can apply.

My advice is to check all the Canadian medical schools to see if they require Canadian citizenship. You can access their web-sites through my site; my site has links to all the English-speaking Canadian medical schools.
