Application for the College of Medicine

Description

The M.D. degree is designed for students who have completed at least 90 semester hours of undergraduate coursework, although preference is given to students with baccalaureate degrees. Applicants must first apply through AMCAS (American Medical College Application Service) and the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) is required. For more information about this program please visit the College of Medicine website at http://www.musc.edu/com/admissions/.

Requirements

The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) scores are required for admission into the first-year class. Preference is given to applicants who have completed four years of college work and have earned a baccalaureate degree. Additional requirements can be found at http://www.musc.edu/com/admissions/.

Application Process

The Medical University of South Carolina College of Medicine participates in the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). Electronic applications may be accessed through the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) website at http://www.aamc.org/.

International Applicants

International applicants for the regular MD program are not considered without a permanent resident visa. This does not apply to those applying to the combined MD/PhD program (MSTP). International applicants to the MD/PhD program are considered with or without a permanent resident visa.

To complete your file for the College of Medicine, three references or a letter from a pre-medical advisory committee must be submitted. Letters of Recommendation should be submitted through AMCAS—we will no longer accept paper recommendations.

A supplemental application is available online for applicants who have completed the AMCAS application. All applicants must complete the supplemental application for further consideration.
