No two candidates are alike. But those who fit best are motivated, academically accomplished students who are ready to tackle the challenges of a rigorous curriculum. But we’re also looking for students who bring the compassion and humanity so important to medical care. We offer a lot in return: a dynamic curriculum, the vast resources of the renowned Wexner Medical Center, and faculty who considers your success and competence their top priority. Physicians and scientists trained here are among the best in the world. We invite you to apply and join their ranks.

The American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) offers a helpful tool for choosing your medical school.
