The Admissions Process

Our policies have now been revised. Please note that this pathway is reserved for Indigenous applicants and applicants who identify as Black African, Black Caribbean, Black North American or multi-racial students who have and identify with their Black ancestry.

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 Life Sciences (Honours) - QL

    • 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 listed above. Applicants must also meet the admissions requirements for the undergraduate program that they choose to apply for.

Applicants from outside of Ontario: Undergraduate Admissions must receive transcripts for students that are attending high school outside of Ontario by February 1, 2021. For more information please visit: How to Submit Documents

What Happens Next?

Applicants will be invited to complete a supplemental application.

Select applicants will be invited for an interview.

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.
