The Admissions Process

Our policies have now been revised to make it clear that there are two admission steps; the first to the QuARMS pathway and the second to the MD program. Students who are admitted to the QuARMS pathway have the opportunity, after two years of undergraduate study, to apply for admission to the MD program. To be clear, admission to the MD program is not guaranteed by admission to the QuARMS pathway.


To be considered for admission to QuARMS, you must complete the following steps:

  • Submit a complete application to one, or more, of the following Queen's University direct-entry undergraduate programs through the Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC):

    • Bachelor of Arts (Honours) - QA

    • Bachelor of Science (Honours) - QS

    • Bachelor of Computing Science (Honours) - QD

    • Bachelor of Health Science (Honours) - QH

Applicants wishing to be considered for the QuARMS pathway MUST select   "QuARMS Pathway" from the available drop-down menu for at least one of the qualifying program choices.

What Happens Next?

Late February: 
Applicants will be emailed to inform them of their status regarding the QuARMS selection process. Selected candidates will be invited to complete the supplemental process. 

Deadline to complete and submit supplemental requirements. 

All candidates who participated in the supplemental process will be notified of their QuARMS pathway status.



After Two Years of Undergraduate Study

Students will need to apply directly to the School of Medicine Admissions Committee. Students will NOT need to apply through OMSAS and will NOT need to write the MCAT. All students will be notified of the academic requirements and invited to an interview with the Admissions Committee if those requirements have been met.
