Successful program applicants have strong academic records, a firm and clear motivation for medicine as evidenced in work experience, activities and interests, and a strong interest in the Master's portion of the JMP with a commitment to learning research methodology. The Program offers a student-centered, interactive learning environment, and we seek applicants who are interested in our small group, case-based, problem-oriented core curriculum.
Applicants must be able to articulate their interest in doing health-related research but are not expected to have a prepared research topic. Experience in developing an independent project while in school or a work environment is beneficial in preparation for completing the Masters curriculum. An introductory statistical course is not currently an admission requirement but is looked upon favorably.
MCAT and GPA averages tend to be similar to those profiled on the UCSF website.
