The application for the Summer and Fall of 2013 will be available online September 1. We only consider applications that are submitted electronically from this website. Due to the sequence of courses and the customized schedule created for you, students may enroll at the beginning of June (Summer Term I), the beginning of July (Summer Term II), or the beginning of September (Fall Term). Most students begin in the first Summer Term; the decision about the most optimal term of enrollment is based on students' preferences and past coursework, and after consultation with the director during the interview process.
Applicants must complete a bachelor's degree before enrolling in the program. The program is not intended for students who have applied to medical school in the past. Generally, if students have previously taken more than half of the science courses required for medical school or taken the MCAT they are not eligible for admission. Individuals with a grade point average below 3.0 are not likely to be competitive applicants. Applicants who have not had Calculus I are strongly encouraged to complete this requirement before entering the program. Clinical volunteer work or employment in a health care setting is strongly recommended. Entrance to the program is highly competitive and requires excellent academic credentials and a record of achievement.
Only US citizens or permanent residents are eligible for admission. Those who have earned undergraduate degrees from foreign institutions are not eligible for admission.
The application period spans from September– March. In order to avoid the possibility of the class filling before you apply, we strongly urge you to complete your application by February 1. To ensure the receipt of application materials in a timely fashion, we kindly request that you submit all supplemental documents--transcripts, test scores, application fee, resume, and the Signature/Payment Form--to us in one envelope.
