A medical doctor is a health professional who diagnoses and treats illness through medical care. Doctors provide a range of care across different specialties, including family medicine, surgery, internal medicine, psychiatry and many more.
The pathway to becoming a licensed doctor takes at least 9 years. Individuals must first complete at least 90 credits of an undergraduate bachelor program prior to entering a four-year medical degree (MD) program. This is then followed by two to five years of residency training (depending on specialty).

The NMP has developed the Northern Pathways to Medicine Program (NP2M) for eligible students from under-represented populations whose long-term goal is admission to the NMP or other health professions programs in northern BC. The program consists of three main elements which aim to support the recipient to be competitive for application to medical school: 1) a longitudinal pre-medical enrichment program alongside their undergraduate degree, 2) formal mentorship from faculty of the NMP and UNBC, and 3) financial support.
