    Hello I'm new to SDnet, and unfortunately my question is terribly silly and I'm embarassed to ask, and I've read quite a few threads already on nursing students attempting to be enter medical school so here's my question.

    In Canada, I can already think of 2 medical universities that do not have REQUIRED pre-requisites and these are:

    McMaster
    University of Northern Ontario

    My question is... can you guys think of any other schools?
    I fully intend on taking the pre-reqs should I not get into the universities that don't require them. Unfortunately none of the science courses I've taken in nursing are required, they are all recommended.

    Thanks for your time!

    Do you live in Canada? If not.. good luck getting accepted to a canadian medical school. Not the easiest feat.

    I don't think there are any US schools that do will admit without pre-req's. Do those Canadian schools you mentioned somehow integrate the pre-req's into their curriculum?

    First of all, no question is "silly". If you want information, you ask either by starting a thread, doing a search etc but in any event, you can't find out what you need unless you ask.

    Second, I am going to move this thread to the International Forums and the Canada subforum. It is likely that you may get better info there and US schools all have prerequisites.

    Welcome to SDN and feel free to ask any questions that you need.

    U of T doesn't have any pre-reqs, you need the MCAT though.

    oh wait-- can anyone think of any medical schools WORLD WIDE (besides US and Canada) that have no pre-requisite courses?

    Thanks again! Hope this ends up being a good thread for tons of people like me who I've spoken to who also needed more information on this topic.

    I read there is one school in Australia...?

    None of the graduate entry programs in Australia have required pre-requisites. However, you have to know chemistry and biology at first year uni level and physics at grade 12 level in order to have a sound foundation for the GAMSAT (Graduate Australian Medical School Admission Test). Most people without science backgrounds (i.e., individuals with undergraduate degrees in the humanities) begin self-study 6-12 months before the test so that they understand the material without having to take the science classes at a university. If you are an international student, you may also apply with a MCAT score, but don't think that you will obtain an acceptance with a MCAT score that is any less than that which would be required to gain admission to medical school in the USA.

    Sure they do. Two courses in the life sciences, and one in the humanities/social sciences.
