Admission Requirements for MD

In alignment with our education mission, we review all applicants holistically. We admit individuals who not only have the potential to excel academically, but also possess personal attributes and competencies that align with our mission and values.

The Admissions Committee reviews all application material, reference letters, and interviewer comments carefully to better understand each applicant. We seek to identify those with the traits and skills that will help them succeed not only as clinicians but also clinicians-plus. These attributes include competent communication and interpersonal skills, integrity, teamwork, altruism, resilience, and critical thinking.

  • Graduate Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT) or Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) results. 
  • 3 – 5 recommendation letters, typically from professors, mentors and/or employers.
