Do I need to take the Pre-Medicine Bridge program before I can apply to the MD program?

August 29, 2020

No, candidates are encouraged to apply directly to the MD program if they meet all requirements. The PMB program is offered as a bridging program to strong, potential applicants who are lacking in certain areas needed for the program. The PMB program will help candidates prepare for the MCAT exam as well as the MD program, through a combination of lectures, mock examinations, and self-study programs. The PMB program is not a degree, but rather a preparatory program, and is a post-graduate program, so candidates still need an undergraduate degree to apply.
