The Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine currently does not accept transfer students for entrance into any year.
The Office of Medical School Admissions will only accept letters of recommendation that have been received and processed through AMCAS. The AMCAS webpage has detailed instructions on how to submit letters.
Letters are used to assess an applicant’s motivation and suitability for medical school and a career as a physician from both an academic and character perspective. Applicants have two options to complete the letters of recommendation requirement:
- A packet from the applicant’s undergraduate or post-baccalaureate prehealth or premedical office, or a career services office
- Four individual letters of your choosing from individuals who can assess your suitability and preparedness for both medical school and a career as a physician
The Office of Medical School Admissions invites applicants for an interview via email. After a date is set, applicants will receive an agenda and information regarding lodging, local travel and other pertinent information. The interview day consists of interviews with students, faculty and administrators; meeting the director of financial aid; an overview of the curriculum and student affairs; a campus tour; and lunch.
Once the School of Medicine admissions committee makes a final decision, each applicant will be informed electronically.
All applicants are required to submit valid MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) scores. Tests must be taken within three calendar years of the year a student intends to enroll in medical school. For example, for entrance in Fall 2017, tests must be taken between January 2014 and September 2016. Both the MCAT 2015 and the old version are acceptable. Applicants can register for the MCAT by visiting the AMCAS website.
The QU MCAT Immersion program is designed to increase the number of underrepresented students in medicine scoring competitively on the MCAT and being accepted into medical school programs.
The applicant must be a college junior, senior or postgraduate who has completed all prerequisite science courses (biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and statistics/math) with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better, and is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Each student must have her/his own laptop computer.
There is no cost to participate. Financial support, along with a travel and housing allowance, will be provided.
