Canadian Medical Education Statistics=Statistiques Relatives a l'Enseignement Medical au Canada. 1981/82. Volume 4.
Statistics on medical education in Canada are presented for 1981-1982, with English and French explanations and tables of contents. Overall areas of concern include undergraduate medical enrollment, graduate medical enrollment for academic and clinical study, research expenditure levels, type and sources of funds, and opportunities for Canadians to study medicine. In particular, the coverage of data related to post-M.D. clinical training has been greatly expanded since previous editions. For the first time, data are shown by rank of trainees and by citizenship status. Another topic receiving expanded coverage is the size of the applicant pool in Canada. The past year has brought a further decline in the share of biomedical research conducted in Canadian faculties of medicine that is funded by the Medical Research Council: 39 percent compared with over 70 percent a decade earlier. Foreign students attending Canadian medical schools are having to pay fees more closely approaching costs, and these fees are reaching levels previously unknown to higher education in Canada. Specific information is presented on: characteristics of entering students and graduates; attrition; masters and doctoral level enrollment/graduation in biomedical sciences; internship and residency data for students who received the M.D.; faculty data; accredited Canadian medical schools; population trends in Canada; and tuition and fees. Based on a study of applicants, information is also presented on comparative acceptance rates by applicant characteristics, including citizenship, age, province or residence, language of instruction of schools applied to, educational background, and performance on the Medical College Admission Test.
