We are pleased you are interested in attending the University of Alabama School of Medicine.   

All applicants are encouraged to review the Guidelines for the Admissions ProcessUASOM Student Code of Professional ConductUASOM Technical Standards and Interview Information.

Alternate List
The alternate list has been set and emails sent. As accepted applicants withdraw, we will accept from the alternate list. We are currently accepting alternates from the first tier wait list.

It is strongly recommended for in state applicants to request electronic feedback about how to strengthen their application beginning in May. To request email feedback, please email medschool@uab.edu.

Due to limited resources, unfortunately, feedback is not available to out of state applicants.

If you are planning on taking the MCAT in August or September, please complete your entire application and place on MCAT Hold. You will then need to email us (medschool@uab.edu) to notify our office that you are waiting on your score. Once you receive your score, please log in to the Secondary Application website and submit or withdraw your application. Applications cannot be moved forward without submitting.

 Updating Your Contact Information
All applicants must maintain updated contact information (address, phone, email) with AMCAS throughout the entire application process.  Your AMCAS contact information is our only source of contact information for you.  We do not maintain a separate database of contact information.


Any applicant who has been accepted but subsequently fails to enroll, or who has been refused admission but wishes to enter in a subsequent year, must re-apply for admission and must meet all requirements at the time of the new application. It is essential for individuals that receive feedback to address the feedback in their secondary application and future evaluations by the committee will be based on how effectively they address their feedback. Both academic and non-academic updates for re-applicants are expected to be received by the admissions office in early January. The Admissions Committee expects all re-applicants to have improved their credentials significantly.

In the best interests of applicants, Reapplicant applications will be reviewed starting after January 1, 2017, however the applications must be completed by the deadlines given. This later review process is done so that any reapplicant has time and can send in supplemental information to add to their application (fall course grades, additional shadowing/volunteer, etc.) for the Committee to review.
