We are committed to a diverse student body and encourage nontraditional applicants to apply. Our admissions committee utilizes the process of holistic review in the consideration of applicants.

Holistic review is a flexible, individualized way of assessing an applicant’s capabilities. Consideration is given to the experiences, attributes and academic metrics of the applicant.

Our goal is to recruit and educate a class which will serve the needs of a diverse patient population. We value leadership, community service, and clinical experience, as well as accomplishments in athletics, employment and research.
