Residency Status

The MD Program uses residency to determine which pool an applicant is ranked within. As the admissions process is quite competitive and we reserve 85% of our positions for residents of Alberta, applicants may be required to present proof of residency. Please refer to the University of Alberta Calendar for the residency definition. Please direct all inquiries regarding residency status to the Office of the Registrar.
