Medical Focus

The ORNH regularly engages with medical students utilizing a series of presentations to provide students with information relating to the structure of Manitoba's health care system and opportunities to live and practice in rural & northern communities.  The ORNH also works actively with the Manitoba Medical Students Rural Interest Group (MMSRIG) at the University of Manitoba ti increase the exposure of students to practice in rural and northern Manitoba.

MCAT Preparation Workshop

The MCAT is a mandatory standardized test that measures the ability to understand basic concepts and to solve problems in the areas of physics and physics-related chemistry (PS) and biology and biology-related chemistry (BS).  It is also a measure of the ability to understand, evaluate and apply information and arguments presented in prose texts (VR) and a measure of the skill of developing a central idea and presenting these in an essay (WS).

With so many things for you to to think about as you apply to Medical School we would like to offer our support in the form of workshops and a comprehensive list of valuable online resources to make your experience less stressful and hopefully end in success!

There is no magic to medical school admissions, it's up to you to be prepared.
