Application Process

The admissions requirements and application process has changed for the 2019 application cycle.  Please read below for the NEW application process.

  1. ​Ensure you have satisfied all of the academic requirements
  2. Apply to the College of Medicine - Tucson via the American Medical College Application System (AMCAS)
    • We strongly recommend submitting your AMCAS application by October 1 to increase the liklihood your application will be verified and received by the College before the November 1 deadline.​​
    • Students whose income (from all sources--including parents) is less than 300% of federal poverty guideliness can qualify for the AAMC Fee Assistance Program (FAP) to help cover application and MCAT fees.
  3. Once your application has been received and verified by AMCAS (usually 4-6 weeks from submission), we will send you a secondary application for the College of Medicine - Tucson.  You will need to select the option for P-MAP to indicate your interest in the program.  Secondaries must be submitted no later than November 15.
  4. Continue with the MD application process as normal.  You will be considered for the MD program until we finalize all admissions decisions, or until all interview seats have been offered.
  5. The Admissions Committee will review applicants who are not selected for admission to the MD program, but have interviewed, for P-MAP.  Notification of admission will occur in early April.
