Please note: In the event that you are not able to provide an official transcript (for example, if the issuing office at your university or college is closed due to COVID-19), the University of Manitoba will accept an electronic transcript provided that it has been sent from the email of the office responsible for issuing transcripts. Applicants who submit their documents electronically may be requested to provide original, physical copies at a later date.

Referee Letters

Do not submit referee letters with your application.

Choose your referees wisely.  It is advisable you choose referees that have known you for a minimum of two years.  They are not required to be academic references.  References from family members will not be accepted.

When asking a potential referee to provide a reference for you, please ensure they know that they will be contacted by the Medicine Admissions Office in January and will be required to complete the online form. 

Your referees should also know that you are unable to change your referees once your application has been submitted (i.e. your referee must be committed to providing the reference for you.)

Letters of Offer

Once a decision has been made, all applicants will receive an email notifying them to log into their application portal to view the decision. Students that are offered admission will be required to confirm their acceptance.

Please refer to the Applicant Information Bulletin for more information.

Information for Non-Admitted Applicants

Our office receives approximately 1,000 applications each year for 110 places in the class. It is highly competitive and there are many applicants who are disappointed at not being extended an invitation for admission.

The Max Rady College of Medicine must protect the integrity of the admissions process. As a result, applicants will not have access to certain information related to their application, including:

  • letters of reference
  • specific MMI or Panel interview scoring
  • composite score or ranking
  • names of MMI or Panel interviewers
  • CASPer® score

The names of the members of the Admissions Committee and the names of the members of the Committee for Reconsideration of Admissions Decisions will not be disclosed.

Appeal Information

Applicants who wish to appeal a decision made by the Admissions Committee must submit their request in writing to the Director, Admissions, Max Rady College of Medicine. 

This request must be received no later than 10 working days from the date of the electronic notification of the decision the applicant wishes to appeal.

The mandate of the Max Rady College of Medicine appeal process shall focus on adherence to the published policies and procedures of the Admissions Committee, and not on substantive issues or the relative merits of the application.
