MDGE Courses

The MDGE courses are available for students in any program to take, provided they receive the appropriate approvals to do so.

Planning ahead? Take a look at the MDGE series Course Planner. This outlines when courses will be offered in a given year.

  • If approved, students will be notified of the registration block removal via email and are responsible for registering themselves in the course within 24 hours of that notice.  
  • You will know that you have successfully registered if the course appears in your Student Centre within 24 hours
