Application Requirements

In order to be eligible for admission, a bachelor's degree in any discipline from an accredited U.S. institution is required.  In addition, students must fulfill the following:

  • Submit GRE test scores (Institution Code 4275).

  • Have a minimum cumulative and prerequisite grade point average of 3.0.

  • Complete all prerequisite courses with a grade of C or higher.
  • Complete 80 hours of experience in a clinical setting (paid or unpaid). Health care experience obtained to meet requirements for any course or degree may not be counted toward the 80 hours of experience in a clinical setting. Examples of qualifying health care experience include shadowing a physician or physician assistant, working as a patient care aid, medical assistant, respiratory/occupational/physical therapist, paramedic, emergency medical technician, or scribe. Applicants logging more than the minimum of 80 hours will not receive additional preference in the admission selection process. Please note that individuals with hands-on patient care experience and those with decision-making responsibility will receive additional preference (see Selection Process section).  All healthcare experience must have been obtained no earlier than the freshman year of college.

  • Three letters of reference (two from a college or university professor, and one from the supervisor for the clinical experience which includes evidence of how the student contributed to the delivery of care).
