McGill University and Université du Québec en Outaouais to offer Med-Programme

Education Information

McGill University is partnering with the Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO) to offer the McGill Faculty of Science’s Medicine Preparatory (Med-P) Program in Gatineau. In September 2020, the program will welcome its first cohort of approximately 20 CEGEP graduates. With the addition of the program, McGill and its partners now offer the full range of its medical training programs in Outaouais: Med-P, Undergraduate Medical Education and Postgraduate Medical Education in Family Medicine. All programs will be offered 100% in French.

The McGill Med-P Program consists of 10 courses (six compulsory science courses, three complementary courses and one elective), which will be taught in French at UQO. Professors from McGill's Faculty of Science will teach the life sciences courses (such as biology and physiology), and professors from UQO will teach the statistics, humanities and social sciences courses. The goal of the program is to prepare CEGEP graduates for the McGill Faculty of Medicine’s Undergraduate Medical Education Program at the new Campus Outaouais.

The launch of the preparatory year in medicine in Gatineau coincides with the start of the Undergraduate Medical Education Program at McGill’s Campus Outaouais, located on the site of the Hôpital de Gatineau. Each year, Campus Outaouais, a partnership between McGill and the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux de l'Outaouais, will welcome a cohort of 24 students, for a total of 96 students over the four-year program, in addition to the students in Med-P at UQO.
