Applicants to the Doctor of Medicine Degree are held to an Applicant Code of Coduct, which is in effect from the date of application submission (or earlier if the applicant contacts the Admissions Office prior to the submission of their application) until they become a Phase 1 medical student at Memorial Universit

2.) References

Eensure references, including Letters of Support for Indigenous applicants, adhere to the published criteria on our webpage.
