My Answers to some common Premed Questions

Unfortunately, if you are not a Canadian citizen, it is extremely difficult to enter into a Canadian medical school. The problem is that medical students are very heavily subsidized by the Canadian government, and therefore by Canadian taxpayers. As a result, most schools require that you be a Canadian citizen in order to apply. My web-page has links to the Canadian medical schools where you can check their admissions requirements.

To answer your other questions, most North American medical schools require that you write the MCAT, the Medical College Admissions Test. This exam tests your knowledge in Physics, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, Biology/Biochemistry, and English.
