The University of Maryland School of Medicine is a participant in the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). Prospective students are invited to begin the application process by visiting the AMCAS Web site at http://www.aamc.org/students/amcas or by writing directly to the Association of American Medical Colleges at 2450 N Street NW, Washington, DC 20037-1126. AMCAS application materials are ready for accession about mid-May of the year in which an individual plans to submit an application to the School of Medicine. All requests for a place in the first year class must be initiated by an AMCAS application.
For the School of Medicine, the AMCAS application is the first of a two-stage application process and must be submitted by November 1. All applicants, residents and nonresidents alike, are invited to submit a second stage application after the AMCAS application has been received by the Office of Admissions. A non-refundable application fee ($70.00), payable to the University of Maryland School of Medicine, is sent only with submission of the second stage application form. The second stage application must be received in the Office of Admissions by December 15.
The application forms, supporting credentials and letters of recommendation should be filed as early as possible in the application period. Letters of recommendation may be sent to the Office of Admissions prior to submission of the second stage application. The deadline for submission of letters of recommendation is January 15.
The applicant must assume full responsibility for assuring that all required materials and the completed application packet are filed with and received by the Committee on Admissions. The applicant is expected to respond truthfully and completely to all questions on the AMCAS and School of Medicine application forms. An applicant who provides false or misleading information may be denied admission or, if enrolled before discovery of irregularity in the application process, may be dismissed from the School of Medicine.
