MD/PHD Program Admissions Home

Application Process

Applicants interested in applying to our MD/PhD program should apply through AMCAS and select MD/PhD as their program type. Applicants  can obtain an application via the web at: AMCAS can also be reached by e-mail at or by telephone at (202) 282-0600.

Only one set of transcripts needs to be submitted to AMCAS, who will coordinate the verification and distribution of your application to the medical schools to which you are applying. Please do not send official or unofficial transcripts directly to the School of Medicine.

After applying through AMCAS, you will be notified via email of the School's receipt of a verified application. Please verify that your email security settings allow emails from

Application materials include:

  • A complete AMCAS Application, including Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) scores (new MCAT exam only) and official transcripts from all post-secondary schools attended.
  • A premedical committee report. If your school does not have a premedical committee, you may submit three individual letters of recommendation: two letters from individual professors (at least one in science) and one letter from a non-academic (included with the AMCAS application). Applicants may submit more than three letters of recommendation, but it is highly recommended that additional letters be submitted through AMCAS.
  • A completed Supplemental Application.
  • A $100.00 supplemental application fee. If you are eligible for fee assistance through the Association of American Medical Colleges Fee Assistance Program (AAMC FAP), your supplemental application fee will be waived.

After applicants have their submitted supplemental application and three letters or a committee packet, their application will be reviewed. We review applications from September through January. Interview invites will be sent through January. Other status updates will be sent throughout the application season. No status updates will be given over the phone.


Although competitive applicants should have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 and a composite MCAT score falling within or above the 50th percentile on the new MCAT exam, non-traditional applicants with extraordinary undergraduate or post-graduate experience, especially in a scientific and/or clinical setting, may request a supplemental application by clicking on the following link and completing the form.
