Is there any Canadian medical school that require applicants to take full course load for 4 years?

If I already have 3 years of full course load, can I take less than 5 courses/semester in my 4th year? Thanks!

Each university has its own definition of what they consider a "full course load". Your best bet would be to compile a list of the schools to which you hope to apply and determine the min/max. If the schools at the top of your list require 5 per semester then it may be a good idea to do so (maybe try something new and challenging that interests you in 4th year -or dive deeper into something you already love?) However, if your top schools require less than five and you aren't interested in the ones that are five, then maybe you can dial it back to 4.
