Prerequisites for Graduate Studies in Internal Medicine
MD degrees are usually conferred upon graduates of the internal medicine program. However, the University of Alberta also offers a graduate degree (MSc and PhD) in experimental (research-based) internal medicine, in addition to their MD programs.
Admission to the graduate program requires the completion of a previous undergraduate degree, with an average of B over the last 2 years. Preference for admission is to degree-holders in the fields of biology or biochemistry, or students with a previous MD degree. Previous work-related experience is considered an asset.
At least 3 years of a previous undergraduate degree is required for admission to the MD program. Completion of a previous degree is an asset. Some schools require an average of at least B in the previous degree (and of course, the higher the average, the better). Completion of relevant courses such as biology or chemistry is considered an asset, rounded out with several humanities and social sciences courses. Additionally, the MCAT (medical college admission test) must be written for admission to most schools. A score of at least 27 is considered an asset for admission.
Generally, students who are in their final year of medical training are automatically eligible for residency training.
