Frequently Asked Questions: After Applying

I am applying to the University of Toronto as an MD/PhD applicant. What additional materials do I need to submit and how do I submit them?

You are required to submit a Curriculum Vitae (CV) via Secure Applicant Messaging (SAM), as outlined on the University of Toronto’s information page in the OMSAS Application Guide.

If you apply to the MD/PhD program, you must also submit 3 additional letters of reference, along with the accompanying MD/PhD Reference Form.

MD/PhD reference letters are confidential and must be either mailed directly to OMSAS or submitted via the online reference system, through your OMSAS application. They will not be accepted via SAM.
