Who We're Looking For

Summary

Successful applicants demonstrate excellence in substantial, independent research projects. Typically, they have engaged in research projects beginning in their sophomore year, or earlier. Long-term research projects (i.e., a minimum of one year) are preferred over multiple short-term experiences; however there is no specific prescription for the type of research or research area that makes an application competitive. Peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals are not required. Outstanding performance in a pre-medical curriculum at a college/university in the US or Canada. Significant exposure to clinical care (eg, shadowing or work in a clinical setting) is important.
