Admission Process

Applications are first assessed by the Admissions Committee for the Undergraduate MD Program, and only if the applicant is invited for interview, will the application be reviewed and ranked by the MD/PhD-MD/Master’s Program Committee. Applications to be considered by the MD/PhD-MD/Master’s Program Committee are first reviewed by the Graduate Admissions Committee of the applicant’s stated graduate program(s) of interest. Applicants who meet the admissions requirements and are acceptable to the chosen graduate program(s) are then ranked by the MD/PhD-MD/Master’s Program Committee and highly ranked candidates are invited for interview. Interviews by the MD/PhD-MD/Master’s Program Committee will coincide with the applicant’s interview for the MD Program. Following the completion of interviews, the MD/PhD-MD/Master’s Program Committee ranks the candidates.  After offers of admission to an MD/PhD or MD/Master's are made, a graduate research supervisor must be identified, and an application submitted to the appropriate graduate program through the regular process (School of Graduate Studies) (application materials already submitted to the MD/PhD-MD/Master’s Program will be forwarded to the appropriate graduate program).  Final acceptance into the MD/PhD or MD/Master’s Program is conditional on acceptance from the School of Graduate Studies. Those who are not offered admission to the MD/PhD-MD/Master’s Program will be ranked together with the other candidates invited for interview for the Undergraduate MD Program.
