University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine Campus
The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa is a bilingual medical school in Ottawa, Canada. It is located at a campus centred around Roger-Guindon Hall in the east end of Ottawa and is attached to the Ottawa Hospital's General Campus. The Health Sciences Complex is separate from the downtown University of Ottawa campus.
The current undergraduate MD program at the University of Ottawa is a 4 year program accepting about 160 students per year; 44 in the French stream and 116 in the English stream. All courses are offered in both languages and students can attend any course they choose. Exams are written in either language. The undergraduate MD curriculum has recently undergone major changes. The first year for the new curriculum was the 2008-2009 school year. Major changes include a more global teaching system with 1 cumulative exam per semester, the restrictions of classes to the hours between 8am and noon to allow students to complete more elective experiences as well as the institution of Self-Learning Modules (SLM) which the student complete on their own time outside of class. The undergraduate medical school currently enrolls approximately 150 students annually and instruction is offered in both English and in French.
