Interview Weekend

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry values a holistic approach to selecting successful applicants. Emphasis is placed on academic and non-academic traits, while remaining committed to ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusion. In addition to grades and admissions test scores, the School evaluates autobiographical sketches prior to determining who is selected for interviews.

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry needs physicians, dentists and community members to volunteer as File Reviewers and Interviewers for candidates applying to the Schulich Medicine and the Schulich Dentistry programs.

Benefits of participation:

  • Help choose future physicians, dentists and colleagues.
  • Interact with colleagues and new individuals on interview days.
  • Read about or meet exceptional applicants for medical school and dental school.

If you are interested in participating as a File Reviewer or Interviewer for Medicine or Dentistry, please email recruit@uwo.ca
