American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS)
UW School of Medicine and Public Health Admissions
Due to office closures, internet connectivity problems and other issues caused by Hurricane Sandy, we have extended our AMCAS deadline to Thursday, November 8.
The American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) is a centralized application service sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The AMCAS application is available in electronic format only, and is the initial application required of all University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health MD Program applicants.
The application must be completed and submitted to the American Medical College Application Service by November 1. Please note that this deadline varies from school to school.
Once AMCAS has received your application and transcript(s), it takes approximately four to six weeks to complete the processing cycle. After we receive and review your AMCAS application, qualified applicants will be asked to submit an electronic secondary application.
The Association of American Medical Colleges provides a helpful reference each year: Medical School Admission Requirements (MSAR). It includes information about each U.S. and Canadian medical school. It also lists the requirements for entrance at each school, the selection factors, and information on deadline dates, oldest Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) considered and tuition and fees.
