MD Education Program

MD Class Selection

IU School of Medicine does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status. Applicants are selected utilizing a holistic process taking into account a broad educational background to include scholarship, character, personality, references, MCAT, altruism and personal interview. Indiana University is a state school, but a number of nonresidents are offered acceptances annually.

Applicants who interview at IU School of Medicine and do not receive an acceptance are encouraged to contact the Office of MD Admissions for consultation and reapply.
