Residence Requirements

There are three seats reserved for applicants of Aboriginal ancestry meeting the Newfoundland and Labrador residency requirements.  Applicants will first be considered within the Newfoundland and Labrador competition, and if not accepted in that competition, then will be considered within the Aboriginal admissions program competition.  

Applicants will be required to meet the admissions requirements as outlined in the Application Preparation Page of our website.  

Applicants will be required to identify themselves on the application for admission, and supply the following information to be eligible to compete in this program. 
  • Proof of ancestry.
  • A letter of support submitted by a leader from your Aboriginal community or organizational affiliation.
  • Describe how your knowledge of Aboriginal culture and experiences as an Aboriginal person would enhance your contribution to the medical school class and the profession of medicine.
