Admissions Overview

To meet the mission and vision of the University of Utah School of Medicine, we seek applicants who will emphasize community, relationships, and professionalism in the learning culture through the Exceptional Education Experience (ELE). ELE promotes the creation of a foundation that develops self-motivated, system-thinking, patient-centered, evidence-based, life-long learners. Our admissions requirements and recommendations reflect these values.

We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy during our current COVID-19 pandemic crisis.

As we navigate this unusual and complex situation, we have made significant and important changes to our upcoming admissions cycle

These discussions have involved the Admissions Committee as well as multiple internal and external stakeholders, and we hope the following updates and modifications will help current and future applicants adapt to the evolving pre-medical landscape.

To read an overview of the requirement changes, please refer to this letter from the Admissions Office.

We encourage each applicant to review application requirements and deadline changes closely. Any further updates and changes will be published on the Admissions Requirements and Application & Review Process pages. 

We encourage applicants to evaluate whether a career as a medical doctor is right for them, and consider if their qualifications, personal characteristics, and goals are a good match for applying to the University of Utah School of Medicine.

It is strongly recommended that students meet with a premedical advisor as they prepare to apply to medical school. Premedical advisors are familiar with the admissions requirements of most medical schools, and can provide valuable guidance and assistance throughout the application process.  If you are a first year college student or a non-traditional applicant, local pre-medical advisors have indicated that they are willing to assist future and current alumni. 


NOTICE: Due to guidance released and monitored by the University to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Admissions team is working remotely. The EHSEB office will be closed to the public until restrictions have changed.

Any questions can still be addressed via email.
