Initial Screening of Applicants
The M.D. Program Admissions Office will begin to communicate with applicants upon receipt of a verified AMCAS application. The Admissions Office will conduct a brief review to ensure that the application meets or exceeds the minimum GPA and MCAT scores, as well as citizenship requirements. Upon verification of these elements, the Admissions Office will send an email to each qualified applicant that includes the link to the Supplemental Application.
Interviews for the 2021-2022 cycle will be conducted virtually. Applicants chosen for interviews must be academically excellent and have demonstrated an interest in medicine through clinical and/or research activities. Those selected for interviews are contacted by telephone and e-mailed by the M.D. Program Admissions Office to schedule two video call interviews. A confirmation e-mail will be provided prior to your video call interviews, with instructions to view a welcome video from the Dean. This video will provide valuable insight to the vision and mission of the UCF College of Medicine M.D. program.
Continuing in the 2021-2022 admission cycle we will be hosting virtual interviews via the Zoom platform. To supplement the virtual interviews and to hopefully give interviewees a chance to learn about what UCF COM has to offer, we plan to host monthly virtual visits for those applicants who have been selected to interview.
The virtual visit will include:
- A visit with the COM Dean and Dean of Student Affairs
- A medical school facility tour
- Multiple interactions with medical students
- Overview of the curriculum, facilities, financial aid, counseling and wellness and other student support services
- Information regarding our commitment to a diverse class and working environment
- An overview of the admissions committee decision process and timelines for making offers of acceptance, placing on waitlist, non-acceptance and future communication and assistance
In addition to the virtual visits, we will invite interviewed students to attend in-person tours which will be held throughout the admission cycle. Dates and times will be provided when students schedule their interviews and virtual visit.
Safety of our students, faculty, staff, and applicants is always our number one concern. We will ensure you have every opportunity to hear from our students and our leaders. We want you to learn everything you need to know about our M.D. program while in a safe environment.
