All portions of the application must be complete for your application to be processed: transcript, board scores (Step 1), letter of interest (this is not your personal statement), background check, and 5 panel drug test.

Notification of Acceptance

Once your complete application has been received by Student Affairs, it is sent to the division of emergency medicine via VSAS for approval. The division requires a letter of interest. Once you have been approved for the rotation, Student Affairs will send you an official letter of acceptance. Emergency Medicine will contact you regarding the specifics of your rotation (where to go on the first day, your schedule, etc.)

Parking

On-campus parking is to be arranged by the student. Parking Passes can be purchased at the Parking Services Office. There is also an excellent public transportation system (UTA) featuring both bus and light rail with stops in front of the emergency department.
