Coaching & Mentoring from Leading Doctors

A Unique Premed Educational Experience For High School and College Students Unlike Anything That’s Ever Been Offered

Last year nearly 6,000 applicants applied to Queen’s School of Medicine. Only 109 were accepted.  With acceptance rates being so low, you need a clear advantage to get a leg up against the competition. PreMedSKL is based on the SHEMS™ model of showing early and persistent commitment to a career in medicine to the doctors on the medical school admissions committees. 


Shadowships in 8 medical specialties to teach you exactly how doctors think in the clinic.


State-of-the-art training so that you develop habits that lead to a successful medical career (We call these MD habits)

Science Fairs

Because success in science fairs is a strong predictor of success in medicine (and is correlated to admission) our team of clinician-scientists will work closely with you to help you excel in this area.


Tailor made for science enthusiasts and those who want to explore a career in medicine

Each 12-week semester is made for high school an college students eager to explore what life as a doctor could be.

PreMedSKL is a 9 month curriculum broken up into smaller 12-week semesters tailor made for students in grades 10-12 and college students. In each semester students explore 2-3 new medical disciplines, similar to how medical students rotate through clerkships. This format allows all  students – those who are passionate about medicine and those who are just curious – to get a real sense of what it’s like to be a doctor.
