Application Process

Students must meet all the admissions criteria of both the MD and PhD programs. An application will be evaluated by the MD/PhD Committee, using the same criteria of academic achievement and scores as the Medicine Admissions Committee, as well as assessing the research experience of the individual. Qualified candidates are selected to come in for interview, in order to get a sense of the general skills, personality and potential of the individual, as well as their ability to cope with the workload and demands of the combined program.

Application deadline is December 1st. 

The MCAT scores required for consideration for medical admission can be found on the Medicine Admissions page.
