The School of Medicine offers a four-year program leading to the degree of Doctor of Medicine. One hundred students are admitted annually into the first year of the program and are selected based on a strong academic record and the assessment of personal characteristics considered to be most appropriate for the study of medicine at Queen's University and the subsequent practice of medicine. The goal of the medical curriculum is to produce physicians who have a wide understanding of the content and context of medicine and the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to enter any postgraduate training program. The curriculum will foster the development of lifelong learning skills necessary for effective practice.

The four-year MD Program at Queen's University is structured in sequential terms which will allow students to progress from scientific foundational knowledge through to clinical foundations of the human systems and finally, in clinical engagement during a two-year clinical rotation series; including electives for students to explore areas of interest. Our medical program is well known for the opportunities it provides; for close personal interaction between students and faculty members; for students to obtain relevant extensive hands-on clinical experience under supervision, particularly in an ambulatory setting. Our MD Program culture encourages participation and offers opportunities for students to engage in the administration development and evaluation of our medical curriculum and our governance structures. Our graduates are highly successful in obtaining postgraduate training sites and are known to be committed and enthusiastic citizens of their profession and their communities.
