About MD+

MD+IdentWEBbanner880x300.jpgSchulich Medicine & Dentistry is committed to creating interdisciplinary, experiential learning environments and offering a wide spectrum of opportunities for students.

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry programs and select others from different Western faculties have been brought together to create new graduate training opportunities for Doctor of Medicine (MD) Program students. Interested students will be able to obtain a graduate degree or diploma at the same time as they are completing their MD degree through MD+.

MD+ is a new track within the MD Program offering four different options for graduate training. It also provides for opportunities to pursue Certificates to complement degrees.

Students with interests in a wide range of topics including basic sciences, the history of medicine, public health, global health management, interdisciplinary medical sciences, space studies and business will find an opportunity that meets their interests. Several additional programs are in development and more information will be shared as official approvals are received.

Students can make inquiries about details related to the application, approval process, timelines and fees with Dr. Gary Tithecott, Acting Vice Dean, Undergraduate Medical Education.
