The Texas Medical and Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS) is the centralized application processing service for applicants to the first-year entering classes at all of the public medical, dental and veterinary schools in the State of Texas. Baylor recommends all M.D. program applicants read the TMDSAS application guide in its entirety before starting the application. Applicants will receive an email invitation to complete the BCM secondary application after submission of their TMDSAS application.
Please note that M.D./Ph.D. program applicants will complete the AMCAS application, not the TMDSAS application.

Foundation for Success
Baylor's accelerated, integrated approach to teaching the core scientific concepts that underlie medicine and our exceptionally diverse clinical training opportunities combine to create a curriculum that prepares our students for success.
Here, you’ll learn how to keep up with, understand, and take advantage of ever-changing information, work in multidisciplinary teams, and interact effectively and compassionately with diverse populations.
The best surprise for me was how welcoming the student body and faculty are. The Peer Resource Network gives us a community of students to connect with right away and contacts with students in other classes who we can feel comfortable going to for guidance. The faculty members are very open to student input and respect our opinions.
