“After completing a Science degree in Chemistry at UOIT in 2007, I was accepted into medical school at the University of Toronto. UOIT gave me a broad set of skills across the sciences, which helped me succeed in the MCAT exam. The research experience I gained during my undergraduate program at UOIT has proven to be highly valuable at medical school since there is a large research component to the program. Many of my colleagues pursued graduate degrees before entering medical school, but I felt well-equipped with the essential research skills I developed under the supervision of my Chemistry professor.”
