The educational program leading to the MD degree is central to the purpose of the Faculty. It must meet all the requirements for accreditation and prepare graduates for postgraduate training leading to licensure and certification by the College of Family Physicians or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. Its special strengths are related to the opportunities for close, personal interaction between students and faculty members and for students to obtain particularly relevant, extensive, hands-on clinical experience under supervision, especially in ambulatory settings. There is great potential for students to benefit from greater integration of the clinical and basic sciences in the curriculum and from increased collaboration in education among the clinical disciplines.
The postgraduate programs at Queen's are, for the most part, highly interdependent. They form a spectrum of high-quality primary, specialty, and subspecialty programs that attract excellent candidates. These programs are highly complementary to the undergraduate program, in accordance with the principle of graded responsibility that underlies the Clinical Academic Unit model, the standard for clinical education in North America.
Continuing medical education is a primary responsibility of the School of Medicine. Assisting physicians to maintain their knowledge and skills plays an important role in the maintenance of their competence. The provision of local and regional programs of continuing medical education assists in strengthening professional liaisons and the rational balancing of primary, secondary and tertiary responsibilities within and beyond southeastern Ontario.

The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
