Application Process

Application Criteria

We use a comprehensive approach to our application review and although we have set some guidelines for the characteristics of an ideal application, we appreciate that sometimes life happens and it can sometimes derail even the best of intentions. We recommend explaining any such instances in your personal statement. It is possible to sponsor J-1 visas.

    • A positive Medical School record (a single resolved issue is acceptable)
