Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry - First Nations Admission Process

The Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry is committed to making a difference in the health of First Nation, Inuit and Metis People in Canada. Our School has made an effort to encourage more Indigenous individuals to consider a career in medicine and dentistry. We do this by providing pathways to increase the enrolment of Indigenous students into the Doctor of Medicine and Doctor of Dental Surgery Program. We work closely with Western’s Indigenous Services to provide prospective and current students with support and counselling to facilitate their success.

Applicants who self-identify as Indigenous persons may be considered for designated seats where they will be considered holistically, taking into account their academic performance as well as their community contributions and personal motivations for entering the program(s).
