All application materials must be complete and be received by the Health Sciences Admissions Office by May 1 for admission to the Program at the start of the spring semester in January. Applications received after May 1 are considered on a space available basis.
Outstanding applicants will be considered for early interview and may be offered acceptance for admissions at an earlier date.
Application materials should be requested directly from the Health Sciences Admissions Office by calling (305) 899-3541 or 1-800-756-6000, ext. 3541. Only those candidates with a completed application package on file, inclusive of all documentation, will be considered for admission. The admission criteria are evaluated as a composite package, serving as an indicator of predictive success in the program. Additional consideration may be given to those applicants who will practice in a rural and/or medically underserved community upon graduation. The Admissions Committee will rank all applicants as Accepted, Provisionally Accepted, Deferred, or Not Accepted. The Admissions Committee may consider applicants, on a space available basis, whose credentials include less than a 3.0 GPA, and who meet all other admission criteria. Such applicants may be granted Provisional Acceptance. Candidates accepted for Provisional Acceptance must attain a minimum GPA of 3.0 or better during the first semester. Admitting students to the program is an on-going process until all the slots are filled.
