Update regarding COVID-19 – Admissions

Update - January 12, 2021

Notice to all undergraduate students:

Most recently, some universities have made the decision to give undergraduate students the option of choosing a qualitative grade (satisfactory / unsatisfactory) for one of their eligible courses for the fall 2020 term as well as for the winter 2021 term. We would like to remind you that if you are considering applying to our Undergraduate Doctor of Medicine (MD) program, it is important to carefully consider the admission requirements before making your decision. To maintain your eligibility, you must have either letter or numerical grades for a minimum of four courses per semester.


Update - April 16, 2020

Dear current and prospective applicants of the MD Program at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Ottawa:

The past few weeks have been challenging for all of us as COVID-19 has made rapid and unexpected changes to our lives. We understand that you may be concerned about the winter academic session. The Admissions Office is currently monitoring the situation closely, and will be revising its policies as needed to minimize the impact of this unforeseen situation. Rest assured, we are working in collaboration with other medical schools across Canada in elaborating solutions and we will provide further details in the coming weeks as things evolve. For the time being, we recommend that all current and potential candidates continue to follow our current eligibility criteria.
