About the Faculty of Medicine

Founded in 1883, The University of Manitoba, Max Rady College of Medicine accepts limited numbers of visiting undergraduate medical students for short periods of elective study.

Our electives program exists to allow students to undertake an independent study of an area of medicine of their own choice and intended to serve in the development of continuing study habits, the understanding of the scientific basis of clinical medicine, and in the evaluation of career direction, both occupational and geographic.

Portal and Visiting Electives update

The AFMC Student Portal for visiting electives is currently closed. Visiting Electives for the Class of 2022 were suspended during the AFMC Board meeting on April 18, 2021. That includes electives for both Canadian and International students. The Undergraduate Deans of Canada’s medical schools are meeting on a regular basis and the decision to re-open the Portal will be made collaboratively and consistently across the country taking into account learning opportunities, provincial covid restrictions and other public health concerns.

We are working with our new Service Provider to build out the new visiting elective service portal. It will be ready when electives are offered again.
