Satisfactory Grades for the MD Program

Satisfactory academic performance relates to the ability of students to achieve standards as measured by course grades. These standards require students complete all program and course requirements and to achieve a passing grade in all courses.

All grades earned in the MD program will appear on the student transcript. The performance of students who do not achieve minimum standards will be reviewed by the Academic Progress Review Committee (APRC). Those students whose performance goes beyond these minimum standards are formally acknowledged by the Dean.

MINIMUM STANDARDS PRIOR TO AUGUST 2019

Effective August 2019, the new “Minimum Standards from August 2019” applies to all students regardless of matriculation date.

MINIMUM STANDARDS FROM AUGUST 2019

For all courses taken from August 2019 onwards, the following standards will apply:

  • Students must achieve a final passing grade of 70% (69.50% or higher)

  • Students must achieve a final passing grade of 72% (71.50% or higher)
