USask increases medical school seats


The University of Saskatchewan’s College of Medicine is increasing its medical school seats as part of the ongoing effort to address Saskatchewan’s shortage of doctors. The undergraduate program will add four seats to the Fall 2023 intake of medical students, and another four to the Fall 2024 intake. The USask College of Medicine also recently announced that it will increase the number of postgraduate residency positions from 120 to 128 seats. “Our team is working hard to ensure we are well-positioned to provide the high standard of medical education we already deliver here to these additional and very welcome learners in our program,” said USask College of Medicine Dean Dr Preston Smith.
