The University of Oklahoma College of Medicine participates in the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). Persons applying to the MD program should begin the application process during the spring or summer a year in advance of the time they wish to be admitted.
All applicants are required to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). The MCAT must be taken no later than the fall of the year in which the application is filed.
The AAMC PREview™ will be recommended, not required, starting in the 2023-2024 cycle. We will hold these scores separately to be used for research purposes, but they will NOT be used for evaluation of the 2023-2024 cycle.
Letters of recommendation are required to complete an application. These may either be a premedical committee letter and one faculty letter, or three faculty letters. Our definition of a faculty letter is one written by a college/university faculty member who has instructed you at the college/university level. These letters should be submitted through AMCAS Letters as part of the AMCAS application. Additional letters of recommendation may also be submitted by the applicant but are not required.
A link to our supplemental application is emailed to all applicants by the College of Medicine Admissions Office after the preliminary application material has been received from AMCAS. A non-resident of Oklahoma applicant who has close ties to Oklahoma should carefully document these ties on the supplemental application. A nonrefundable application fee of $85.00 is required to be submitted electronically with the submission of the supplemental application. Applicants receiving an AMCAS fee waiver will receive a College of Medicine application fee waiver.
The University of Oklahoma College of Medicine has two educational tracks; the OU Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) in Oklahoma City and the OU School of Community Medicine (OUSCM) in Tulsa. Applicants interested in applying to the OUSCM track will be required to complete additional questions specific to the OUSCM on the supplemental application.
Applicants currently enrolled in a graduate degree program are required to submit a letter from the program director or chair of the department which states the applicant is in good standing and that they are supportive of the application.
Applicants applying to the joint MD/PhD program will be contacted separately and provided with information regarding the MD/PhD supplemental application. .
All successful applicants will be interviewed by the Admissions Board in Oklahoma City and offered a position in the Oklahoma City educational track. Successful OUSCM applicants will receive an additional interview with the OUSCM and if offered a position in both educational tracks, the final track selection will be made by the applicant.
