Application Requirements and Process

Books on shelves in library.

To be eligible for the program, students must have completed their bachelor's degree from an accredited academic institution. All required materials must be received before your application can be reviewed.

To apply, please submit an online application for admission which includes the following:

  • A personal statement outlining your experiences and motivation for your chosen health profession.
  • A transcript from each college and graduate school attended or currently attending (high school transcripts are not required).
  • Two letters of recommendation. At least one letter should be an academic recommendation.
  • A current, targeted résumé.
  • *SAT, ACT, or GRE test scores. Scores do not need to be recent.
    • When requesting official scores, please use the following institution codes:
      7758 (SAT)
      3901 (GRE)
      9076 (ACT)
    • Do not use the general Tufts University code when ordering your SAT or ACT reports.
  • A non-refundable application fee of $100

*SAT, ACT, or GRE scores are required, if the tests were taken, regardless of when they were taken.  If none of these scores are available (none of these tests were taken), then applicants will be required to write a brief essay in which they will explain why none of the tests were taken and how one's educational background will contribute to one's success in completing the program's science coursework.

Please note that we are currently not accepting documents by mail. All documentation must be submitted electronically. 

Please note that all supporting materials and documentation including transcripts, letters of recommendation, personal statements and resumés must be received by the deadline in order for an application to be reviewed and considered. Incomplete application packets will be administratively withdrawn. 

Once an individual submits a completed application, they receive access to an online status page to review its progress.

Applications are reviewed by the Admissions Committee after each application deadline (March 1 and June 1). We do not review applications and make decisions on a rolling basis.

We review candidates for the next program start date only.
