American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS)


You'll apply to the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). AMCAS is a service used by most leading medical schools. 

The University of Arizona has two colleges of medicine: the College of Medicine - Tucson and the College of Medicine - Phoenix. Both colleges offer an outstanding medical education. Make sure to designate the specific college you wish to attend.

At this stage, some applicants are asked to supply more information through our secondary application. We will thoroughly evaluate your application in making this decision, so it may be some time before you are notified.

Can you update your AMCAS once it has been submitted?

The only thing you can update is contact information. You would need to contact AMCAS to make those changes. You can’t update your experiences in AMCAS once they have been submitted.

If you anticipate something happening, you may either wait to submit your AMCAS application or else note the possibility so that it is still accounted for (i.e. “Research publication pending”). The College of Medicine DOES NOT ACCEPT application updates unless you are submitting new coursework to show completion of unfulfilled pre-requisite requirements.
