Admissions Info Sessions

Our admissions team will host online information sessions on March 21 at 9:00 AM to answer questions about the admissions process, application requirements, program acceptance criteria, and more.

  • Curriculum Vitae

    Provides a summary of your experience, education, skills, awards and any research/medical publications.

  • Personal Statement

    Please identify in the first few sentences of your letter which track you intend to pursue.

    This statement can detail academic, professional, or personal experiences. The only requirement is that the statement be limited to 500-750 words in length. 

  • Transcripts

     All applicants must submit Undergraduate and Graduate transcripts. A transcript is an official document issued by the institution you attended that lists all subjects taken and grades earned for each year of study.

    All international applicants must submit transcripts in English or accompanied by an English translation.

    Unofficial transcripts may be submitted at the time of application; however, accepted applicants must provide official copies from their graduating institutions before matriculation. Please do not submit copies of degree diplomas or certificates. These will not fulfill the transcript requirement.

  • Letters of Reference

    During the application process you will be prompted to enter the name and email address of 2 references one of which should be a current or prior mentor and/or supervisor and address your suitability to the program. 

    1. Letter of reference from current or prior mentor and/or supervisor. 
    2. Letter of reference from current Department Chair or Division Chief

    References will be automatically emailed a request to submit a reference. However, it is the applicant’s responsibility to follow up with the referees to ensure timely submission of references.
