Founded in 2010, the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine is designed to educate and develop students into highly qualified and compassionate physicians.
Our philosophy is student-centered. Our curriculum and clinical placements are intentionally designed so everything we do models how we want our students to care for their patients. You’ll find our culture embraces diversity and inclusion in its broadest sense, with students from a variety of backgrounds, identities and perspectives.
By the time you move into your residency, you’ll be well on your way to a meaningful medical career. We welcome your application and the chance to meet you, discuss our program and give you a tour of our state-of-the-art facilities.
Candidates must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university, or an international equivalent degree. Permanent residents or Green Card applicants may apply. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students should contact the admissions office directly. We do not accept transfer students for entrance into any year.
Two semesters of the prerequisite courses must be completed prior to matriculation. Upper-level courses and AP credit may be used to satisfy basic requirements when applicable. Online courses of prerequisites will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Applicants must complete a minimum of 32 semester hours of the prerequisites in biology, chemistry and physics from an accredited college or university in the United States or Canada. Coursework recommended, but not required, includes natural sciences, human physiology, genetics and cell biology, psychology, sociology, ethics, health policy, foreign language, humanities, communications or computer literacy.
We welcome applications from all candidates who score competitively on the MCAT and exhibit academic competency, regardless of their race, ethnicity, socio-economic status or geographic location.
Candidates are required to submit an initial application through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS), which is provided through the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). This allows for AMCAS to process and verify the completion and submission of each application, including the fee and supporting documents before the School of Medicine reviews the file.
All applicants are required to submit valid MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) scores. Applicants can register for the MCAT by visiting the AMCAS website.
Qualified applicants will be invited to submit a Secondary Application via email. Following a rigorous screening process, candidates will be invited for an on-site interview. After a date is set, candidates receive an agenda and information about lodging, local travel, and other pertinent details. The interview day consists of meetings with students, faculty, and administrators. Candidates will also be given an overview of the curriculum, student life, and financial considerations. The day finishes with a tour of our campus.
International Applicants: Permanent resident aliens or applicants with a Green Card in their possession may apply.
Transfer Policy: We currently do not accept transfer students for entrance into any year.
We have fostered a teaching and learning community free of discrimination, where diversity in all its forms is celebrated and inclusivity is a responsibility shared by all. Excellence in medical education, scholarship, and the delivery of clinical care is achieved in an environment of collaboration and mutual respect.
The Match Day ceremony celebrates our graduating students’ achievements as they prepare to embark on the next chapter in their medical careers. Our students' impressive matches exemplify the Netter School of Medicine’s growing reputation for preparing doctors to treat the whole patient.
We offer an MCAT immersion program designed to help students develop test-taking strategies and optimize your overall score.
We’re always here to help provide additional information and answer any questions you may have.
