The Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at Western University has a long tradition of excellence, beginning with the founding of the medical school in 1881. Our reputation has been built by dedicated teachers, breakthrough discoveries and our commitment to patient-centred care.

The undergraduate medical curriculum is an integrated four-year program designed to provide each student with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to advance to graduate or postgraduate studies leading to clinical practice, research or other medical careers. The educational format is a blend of lectures, laboratory exercises, small group learning and supervised clinical experience in community and hospital settings. The program is delivered at sites in London, Windsor and throughout Southwestern Ontario.
