Applying to medical school can be daunting — we’re here if you have any questions along the way.

Please note that all decisions regarding admission to the MD Program are made by the Admissions Committee. Staff support the committee in processing applications and notifying applicants, but we do not vote on admissions decisions. Thank you for understanding.

Who do I contact?
