U of T School of Medicine looking for Black Community Members!

Message From University of Toronto

The University of Toronto’s MD Program has recently announced a new admission pathway for black students called the Black Student Application Program (BSAP). We are excited to launch BSAP for the 2017-2018 admission cycle, with our application opening in July 2017.

For more on this application program, visit the BSAP webpage.

In addition, we invite you to review some of the recent media coverage on BSAP.

Toronto Star: U of T aims to attract more black medical students

CTV Morning: Dr. Lisa Robinson and student Chika Oriuwa speak with host Melissa Grelo

We are currently looking for members of the black community, particularly those with an interest and connection to healthcare and education, to participate in our MD admissions process. Our hope is to diversify our pool of admission file reviewers and interviewers, in order to further address the potential for unconscious biases and to create a more welcoming and culturally safe admission process for our black applicants.

If you are interested in participating, we invite you to share your information with us via this brief survey form:

We will be in touch during the summer months to share further information on ways in which you might get involved with this initiative. If you have any questions, please email Jessie Metcalfe (, Associate Registrar, Enrolment Management for U of T’s MD program.

Thank you,
