“Studying medicine in London combines the complex clinical experience of a high-level tertiary care center, with the feeling of living in a small community. Our London campus is made special by its people—here you’ll find a collection of staff, students, and faculty, all dedicated endlessly to each other’s success in life and academia.” Watch Video
“I've grown to love the city of London. The network of trails through the city and beautiful communities and landscapes nearby make for incredible weekend hikes and cycling. I’m grateful for the diversity in clinical experience that I've had - I feel like I've had exposure to so many areas in medicine already, and there are many dedicated faculty who are willing to offer mentorship and support.” Watch Video
“Though I know most of my Windsor colleagues, the distance does have an effect on our relationship. None-the-less, we still collaborate with each other, and share study notes and rides to rural clinical placements. We are two distinct communities- but are always willing to come together to celebrate our successes and help each other when we are struggling.” Watch Video
