As a convenience to the applicant, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine participates in the American Medical College Application Service. All application materials may be obtained through AMCAS.
For those of you who are considering applying to the 2018 First Year Class, you may complete your AMCAS application and indicate that you want your data sent to Vanderbilt University School of Medicine beginning June 2017. You can submit your AMCAS application between June 2, 2017 and November 1, 2017.
Vanderbilt secondary applications will be sent to about one third of our applicant pool.
Multiple faculty members give an independent, holistic review of the AMCAS application in order to decide who will receive a secondary application. Approximately 20% of applicants who completed a secondary application will be invited for an interview. Every applicant will be notified by email regarding whether an interview has been granted or the admissions process has ended for an applicant.
