Students Wishing to Transfer
The College of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan does not accept students wishing to transfer from another medical school into our program.
A Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada currently enrolled in another medical school who wishes to attend the College of Medicine MUST apply through the regular admissions process. Our admissions requirements and policies can be found at Applicant Information
In compliance with the university-level Articulation and Transfer Credit Policy, the College of Medicine reserves the right to approve or deny requests for transfer credit or advanced standing in the Undergraduate Medical Education program (see https://medicine.usask.ca/policies/transfer-student-policy.php). Requests for transfer credit or advanced standing will only be considered on a case-by-case basis post-admission to the Doctor of Medicine (MD) program at the University of Saskatchewan. The process to determine transfer credit(s) may result in a cost incurred by the student.
Campuses and Sites
Our province is our campus.
More than 40 sites across Saskatchewan — some permanent, some rotating — support our learners as they gain front line clinical experience and training.
Our Saskatoon campus is located in the newly renovated Health Sciences Building at the University of Saskatchewan.
The Health Sciences Building is home to the Leslie and Irene Dubé Health Sciences Library, classrooms, meeting rooms, breakout rooms, study spaces. It also hosts educational and research facilities including the Clinical Learning Resource Centre. Located in the E-Wing, the centre is home to skill labs, examination rooms, procedure and simulation labs.
The college is closely affiliated with Saskatoon's three hospitals: Royal University Hospital, St. Paul's Hospital and Saskatoon City Hospital.
Our Regina campus offers learners a close-knit community. Our students notice the quality of their interactions and the personalized, hands-on approach to teaching and learning they experience in Regina.
The campus is situated at the Regina General Hospital (RGH), which houses multiple facilities including the Health Sciences Learning and Resource Centre, an auditorium, meeting and breakout rooms, study spaces, the health sciences library and the Dilawri Simulation Centre.
The Dilawri Simulation Centre enables facilitated learning sessions and independent skill development. The centre features a full array of high-fidelity simulators — premature, newborn, pediatric and adult, as well as a state-of-the-art birthing mannequin. The centre provides after-hours access for medical learners involved in special interest groups and a rich environment for interprofessional simulated learning.
Our Regina-based learners also gain experience at the Pasqua Hospital and the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre.
In Years 3 and 4 of the MD program, a small group of students complete their studies at our Prince Albert instructional site at Victoria Hospital.
In addition to inpatient and outpatient exeriences, Prince Albert students will experience firsthand exposure to trauma, Indigenous health, public health, addictions medicine and prison health.
The Rural Family Medicine Program is a reflection of the diversity of care at this site. As the third-largest service district in Saskatchewan, the diverse population and health needs are balanced by the broad range of rural, urban and specialty physician services found in Prince Albert.
Thirty per cent of the population is Indigenous. The city's population also has a great proportion of elderly and young patients — with a high birthrate of more than 1,500 deliveries per year, ranging from routine to extreme with complexity.
Victoria Hospital's emergency room is one of the busiest in the province. Ninety per cent of visits are urgent, emergent or critical.
The college recently introduced a Saskatchewan Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (SLIC) that extends for 48 weeks during Year 3, with four positions available for students at sites in Estevan and Meadow Lake.
The experience features comprehensive care of patients over time, while meeting the third-year clerkship core clinic competencies across multiple disciplines simultaneously in one teaching environment.
