Online coursework is accepted for Spring and Summer 2020 only. Study abroad coursework is not accepted to fulfill prerequisite requirements.

  • MCAT
    • For the 2020-2021 cycle, we are waiving the MCAT requirement due to the uncertainty of test availability. Students should send practice test scores and projected MCAT test date to medmasters@evms.edu to have those added to their files to help with competitiveness. Please keep in mind a competitive MCAT score is still required for medical schools.
    • One-year program: MCAT with a minimum score of 503.
    • Two-year program: MCAT with a minimum score of 496.
      • We will accept MCAT scores from exams taken January 2018 to present for the 2020-2021 school year.
  • We do not accept GRE scores in place of MCAT scores.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents.

Applicants from rural or other underserved regions and those who have been disadvantaged or underrepresented for economic, racial or social reasons, and who possess the motivation and aptitude required for the study of medicine, are strongly encouraged to apply.

All courses to fulfill the degree requirements for the Medical Master's program must be taken at EVMS. No credit will be given for courses taken at another institution.

Since we have a rolling admissions process, applicants are encouraged to apply early and submit all of their application materials as they become available, even when planning to take the MCAT at a later date.
