Just What the Doctor Ordered
The Insider's Guide to Getting into Medical School in Canada
The Pre-Med Book With a Difference - Benefit from strategies and insights developed during my 8 years as a medical school application reader/interviewer for a Canadian medical school, 21 years helping pre-med and pre-residency students, and former work recruiting physicians to Internal Medicine and its subspecialties.
You probably already know that getting into med school in Canada isn't easy--Ontario statistics show that less than 15% of applicants get accepted on their first try and other provinces and states are similarly competitive.

Christine provided essential guidance during the nerve-wracking process of applying to the Canadian medical school system. I attribute getting in on my first try to a school of my choice in part to her professional input. I am so impressed that I will be using her services again when I apply for my specialty fellowship abroad. - Danielle H., Haematology Resident
I decided to pursue medical school rather late, I was completing a masters degree at the time, and didn't know much about what was involved. Christine taught me about the application process and provided great advice about the types of things successful applicants do to stand out When it came time to apply, Christine helped me perfect my personal letters, fine tune my autobiographical sketch and even provided interview tips. I am very grateful to Christine for her help.
- Graham S., General Surgery Resident
About the Author
I was a medical school application reader and interviewer for a Canadian medical school for 8 years and also worked recruiting academic physicians to specialties such as neurology, haematology, interventional cardiology, palliative and critical care. For 20+ years, I taught in the Queen's University School of Medicine, helping 4th-year medical students applying to CaRMS and residency positions. I have developed and presented highly successful medical school and residency application and interview workshops for thousands of students.
I worked as a career counsellor for 20 years with university undergraduate and graduate students at Queen's University (1998-2018) and have been in private practice since 2007. Since 1998, I have helped thousands of students successfully apply to both medical school and residency programs in Canada, US, and abroad.
