  2. Complete the separate, BMED-specific application. BMED Online Application Form 
  3. Submit the following documents with your application:

The BMED Admissions Committee will begin reviewing completed applications November 15, 2019. Students will be contacted regarding the committee's decision and, if accepted, you will receive an email with further instructions.

Even if you indicated interest in the BMED program (by checking the pre-BMED box in the Apply Texas application), you are NOT admitted into the BMED program until you follow the above process and receive a letter of admission from the Department.

Priority application deadline is March 1st. We have limited seats in the program.

It is in your best interest to apply by the priority deadline to guarantee the best selection of course times and location. BMED admissions closes June 30, 2020.
