Admissions for MD


Welcome to The Ohio State University College of Medicine.

Thank you for expressing an interest in preparing for your career in medicine at Ohio State.

There's no doubt about it; medical school is a challenging commitment that requires perseverance, determination and dedication, but one that leads to a rewa​rding and fulfilling career in medicine. In addition to a four-year medical school program, the Ohio State University College of Medicine now offers a three-year program, the Primary Care Track (OSU-PCT), for students interested in pursuing a career in family medicine.

The Ohio State University College of Medicine seeks to recruit self-directed learners who are driven to become empathetic physicians providing evidence-based, compassionate medical care. The Admissions Committee will assemble a class that displays diversity in background and thought, strong intellect, and the potential to improve people’s lives through innovation in research, education, and community service.

As you prepare to enter this distinguished and respected profession, you can be sure that we will do our utmost to guide you through the process. To help with the interview process, read my interview tip sheet. Those who are reapplying may learn how to improve their chances on their second try by reading Advice for the Medical School Reapplicant.

Thank you; we look forward to hearing from you.
