Application and Admissions
Applicants should have a B.S. or B.A. with a major in any of the Biological or Physical sciences (Biological Psychology, Mathematics or Computer Science are all OK). Recommended course requirements for entry into the Program are mathematics through calculus, general physics, general biology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry. Laboratory research experience is desirable. Applicants are required to take the Graduate Record Examination (general aptitude test required, subject test is recommended) or Medical College Admission Test, and are encouraged to take the Examinations in November or earlier so that the scores will be available in time for evaluation starting December 16. Two letters of recommendation, transcripts of undergraduate grades and a statement of interest are required. The deadline for submission of completed applications (including letters of recommendation and EITHER Graduate Record Exam scores OR Medical College Admission Test scores - ETS GRE/TOEFL Institution Code is 5316) is December 1 (this is an earlier deadline than other graduate programs at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine). When feasible, applicants will be invited to visit The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine campus before a decision on admission is made. This year, program interviews will be conducted on Monday and Tuesday, February 25 - 26, 2013. All candidates will be notified of the Admission Committee's final decision by April 15. Candidates are accepted only for fall admission. Candidates for the M.A. degree are not accepted.
