Admission requirements

If applying from high school, applicants must have maintained a minimum 80 per cent academic average during grades 11 and 12.

If applying as a current Brock student, applicants must have maintained a minimum 80 per cent academic average in their two most recently completed years of education. 

Applicants should be aware that a significantly higher academic average improves chances of admission. The admissions committee may cancel admission or revoke registration if it finds an applicant has not met this minimum requirement.

  1. Complete the online application, including the name and email of a reference
  2. Submit your academic transcript or give us permission on the application to check your transcript electronically.
  3. Submit a letter of reference (the reference form must be received directly from your reference).
  4. Application deadline is April 30 each year

You will be asked on your application to provide information about your current academic standing, an autobiographical sketch and a statement of interest.

You may give the Med Plus admissions committee permission to access your transcript online, which is available through the Brock University Registrar’s Office. A hard copy of your transcript must be sent to us for review if you do not want the admissions committee to view your transcript online.

Send hard-copy transcripts to:

Attn: Med Plus Consultant
Career Education, ST119
1812 Sir Isaac Brock Way
St. Catharines, ON
L2S 3A1
 

Transcripts must be received by the application deadline.

The autobiographical sketch is a list of an applicant’s relevant activities since age 14 within the following categories:

  • Employment;
  • Volunteer activities;
  • Extracurricular activities;
  • Awards and accomplishments;

Applicants are advised to list a maximum of 10 activities that will give the admissions committee insight into who they are. Applicants should include experiences that demonstrate an ability to determine needs in their community and a willingness to play a part in filling those needs.

Applicants are required to answer each of the following questions in 250 words or less:

  1. What areas of health care and/or medicine are you currently interested in pursuing and why?
  2. What are your goals in Med Plus? How do you see Med Plus benefiting you and your future career?
  3. What qualities, strengths and experience will you bring to Med Plus?

Applicants should be aware that the same reader may not score all of the questions, so they are asked to answer each question individually.

Applicants must submit the name and email address of a reference. Once your application is submitted, we will email your reference directly and provide them with a form to complete and return to Med Plus before the application deadline.

The form must be completed in confidence by the reference and should not be made available to the applicant. References should have extensive personal knowledge of the applicant and be able to make statements about the applicant’s character, personal qualities, academic capabilities and suitability for the Med Plus program. It is recognized that references may not be able to evaluate all of the characteristics requested; however, applicants should ensure that most subject areas can be covered by their reference.
