Application Information

All applications for admission to the six Ontario medical schools are submitted through the Ontario Medical School Application Service (OMSAS). To apply to the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, applicants must register and create an account with OMSAS before mid-September.  The application deadline is the first week of October for admission the following September.

Please visit the OMSAS site for information regarding the application process.   The official admissions policy for the Northern Ontario School of Medicine's Undergraduate Medical Program (UME) is published in the Ontario Medical School Application and Instruction Booklet available on the OMSAS website: www.ouac.on.ca/omsas.

The Northern Ontario School of Medicine reserves the right to review and change the admissions requirements at any time without notice. Please monitor our website for up-to-date information.

All documents and application materials must be submitted through the application centre.  Candidates will be assessed solely based on materials submitted to OMSAS by the application deadlines.  Addendums or supplemental materials sent directly to the School of Medicine will be destroyed.   

Please be aware that application deadlines are strictly enforced.  All required documentation must be provided by the specified deadlines as outline below and on the OMSAS website.   Applicants who fail to comply with application deadlines and/or requirements will be disqualified.

Falsification of Application Information

If it is discovered that any application information is false or misleading, or that information has been concealed or withheld, the application will be disqualified; or, if discovered after an offer of admission has been sent, that offer will be withdrawn. If these circumstances are discovered after the student has been admitted into the Medical Program, the student will be required to withdraw from the Program. An applicant so discovered will be barred from applying to the Northern Ontario School of Medicine for five years. Other medical school admissions committees will be notified of the nature of the offence and the name of the applicant.
