Questions related to admissions

Q: Do you use a rolling admission policy? Are my chance of being accepted lower, if I decide to take my interview late?
A: Yes. Under rolling admission, candidates are invited to submit their  applications to the university anytime within a large window. The window  is usually over six months long, and some schools do not have a  previously specified end date (the window simply closes when all spots  are filled). The university will then review the application and notify  the applicant of their decision within a few weeks from submission.

The license to practice the profession of Medical Doctor is governed by commonly abiding regulations and graduation from the University does not automatically implement the right to practice the profession as every country has different regulations and prerequisites in terms of practice Medicine.
