School Overview

School Info

As a student in the University of Ottawa`s Faculty of Medicine, you will follow a challenging path to the art and science of medicine. Lectures and seminars introduce basic concepts and overviews of the biomedical scientific knowledge that underlies modern medicine. At the same time, you will work in small groups on problem solving exercises as a way of developing many of the personal qualities that distinguish the best doctors, such as trust and compassion, communication skills, ethical professional conduct and patient advocacy. You will benefit from direct training in clinical settings, where you will join a medical team made up of health professionals.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
