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.

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.
