Details on the policies, preferences, criteria, factors, and procedures used in the admission process. Data appear as originally submitted by this school.

We encourage students with a broad and balanced educational background during their undergraduate years. Work must demonstrate intellectual drive, independent thinking, curiosity, and self-discipline. We seek in applicants the same humanistic qualities and attitudes we consider essential in a physician: integrity, a respect for others choices and rights, compassion, empathy, and personal insight.
