Applications for the 2022-23 MTM Cohort are now open! The deadline to submit your application is January 6th, 2022 at 8:59pm Pacific Time.
We will be hosting a few online information sessions about the program from October through December, sharing an overview of the curriculum, the application process, and offering a chance to hear from current students and alumni. You can read more about those information sessions and register here and can access recordings of those sessions here.
Please fill out our Request Information form to be notified of the details of the session closer to the events.
Below, you can watch the recording of a webinar we held in November 2021 giving an overview of how to craft a competitive graduate school application.
Decisions on admissions are made by a committee looking to build a cohort with the range of skills needed for the translational medicine process. The committee considers all aspects of the applications packet, including (but not limited to), academics, essays, letters of recommendation, and prior research and work experience. Students from all educational fields are eligible to apply, though all applicants should be aware that the masters curriculum includes required coursework in bioengineering fundamentals.
The application consists of the following elements:
- The Graduate Application for Admission and Fellowships (online)
- Three (3) Letters of Recommendation
- Additional materials (if needed)
- Unofficial Transcripts (submitted online)
- Conversion of GPA (for International Students Only)
- Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Official Scores (for international students only)
- Application Fee (note that this fee can be waived through demonstration of affiliation with various organizations or financial need)
Standardized test scores are no longer required to apply to the MTM! If you have already taken the GRE or MCAT, you are welcome to submit your scores, but they are not an essential component of your application. Applications that are incomplete by the time of review will not be competitive for admission. Making sure an application is complete is solely the responsibility of the applicant and should be done in a timely manner.
