Gaining admission to medical school is competitive. As the table below shows, the number of prospective students applying to medical school vastly outnumbers the places available. In-province applicants are generally more successful in gaining a spot than those applying out of province. The grade point average (GPA) shows the average for successful applicants, as does the medical college admission test (MCAT).
