MD-PhD Program Admissions
The applicant’s credentials will be evaluated by both the Medical School and the Graduate School. The MCAT is required for all applicants.
Initial application is through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). This is a highly competitive program. In addition to outstanding grades and MCAT scores, the applicant should provide evidence of enthusiasm and aptitude for research, with prior research experience beyond that of college courses. This will be an important factor in evaluation of the application.
After the Supplemental Application Packet, MCAT scores and letter(s) of evaluation are received, the completed application is reviewed by the committees on admissions of the MD/PhD Program, the Medical School and the Graduate School. A small percentage of applicants are then asked to visit the University for interviews from October through January.
