What you will learn

The undergraduate medical education program in the College of Medicine is a four-year program leading to the Medical Doctor (MD) degree. Upon earning the MD degree, students are then eligible to apply for postgraduate training in the discipline of their choice.

Years one and two

The first two years of medical education are called pre-clerkship. Students learn basic sciences and how to apply that learning in clinical conditions. They learn how to take medical histories and perform physical exams, first on standardized patients and then on real patients. At the same time, they are introduced to the factors that can affect both people’s health and how they function in society. Students have the opportunity to participate in research and earn Global Health Certification.

Years three and four

After pre-clerkship comes clerkship. During year three, which is the first year of clerkship, students put into practice what they have already learned. They participate in clinical rotations and provide patient care both in hospital and in outpatient clinics. Clinical experiences occur not only in Saskatoon, Regina and Prince Albert, but also in rural and remote communities throughout Saskatchewan. In year four, students have further opportunities to experience different fields of medicine by participating in electives in Saskatchewan and at other medical schools throughout Canada. This prepares them for choosing a residency program at the end of year four.
