How to Apply

Applying to medical, dental, veterinary, or allied-health schools is an intricate process. It is important that you plan ahead and meet with a pre-med advisor to ensure you are making progress toward your goal.


Texas Health Education Service has created a website that contains policies that have been released by all medical, dental, and veterinary schools that participate in TMDSAS.


Applying to medical school usually takes place during your junior year. Prior to this, you will have spent time planning, acquiring knowledge from foundational courses that are part of the prerequisites for your particular field(s) of interest, and expanding your academic portfolio by participating in high-impact experiences, such as shadowing. The Center for Career and Professional Development page has a wealth of information and valuable resources to help you in the process.
