WCM-Q selects applicants for interview on a competitive basis, according to the extent to which they fulfill the criteria described on the six-year medical program admission requirements page of this website.

If you are offered an interview, we will notify you by e-mail containing a date and time. You must confirm your attendance and choice as soon as possible by return e-mail. Actual interview times are not scheduled until we receive confirmation of your preferred date and time.
