Applying to Medical School

We are glad that you have selected medicine as your chosen profession and we are here to help you through what we feel will be the best years of your academic life. UTMB offers an Integrated Medical Curriculum that is a 4 year program leading to the Doctor of Medicine degree. Admission to medical school is determined by an appointed Dean and an elected group of faculty members made up of a combination of MDs and PhDs, known as the Admissions Committee.

To be considered for admission, you must first apply through the Texas Medical and Dental Schools Application Service ( center in Austin. Here you will find everything necessary to help navigate your way through the admissions process.
