We seek individuals with broad educational backgrounds and, as such, do not require applicants to have completed an undergraduate or graduate degree in the sciences. At the same time, an applicant must demonstrate the ability to handle scientific concepts evidenced by the successful completion of all course prerequisites and academic achievement in undergraduate or graduate courses completed.
Our faculty are here to support you throughout your training. Since most of our faculty have been with the program for many years, they have the experience and knowledge necessary to help you succeed.
Application Deadline Aug. 1
The application must be verified by CASPA, and materials and payments must be submitted by midnight of Aug.1 for each admission cycle. Come to an Information session to learn more about our program. Review prerequisites and required application materials and technical standards.
"I didn't realize before I came here the amount of diversity at the College, particularly for the LGBTQ community. I want to have a practice that focuses on LGBTQ patients so the culture competency classes that focus on LGBTQ issues and access to research here with transgender patients have been great unexpected benefits."
"I really appreciate that Baylor values diversity. I came from outside the medical realm and felt that Baylor really valued that I had this background as an asset rather than a detriment. Many of my peers have different backgrounds as well and that has really enhanced my experience."
