Apply to UVA

The School of Medicine’s admissions process uses a holistic review in order to select a talented and diverse student body. Applicants to medical school are evaluated on a number of parameters: academic achievement (GPA and MCAT), healthcare experience, volunteer experience, personal statement, letters of evaluation/recommendation and for those who are invited, a personal interview.
