Should an applicant wait to complete the Secondary Application, we cannot guarantee that all qualified applicants will have an opportunity to interview.

All applicants are encouraged to review the Guidelines for the Admissions ProcessUASOM Student Code of Professional Conduct and the UASOM Technical Standards.

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 in force at the time of the new application. The Admissions Committee expects all re-applicants to have improved their credentials significantly.

If you are an Alabama Resident not accepted to a medical school and plan to reapply to our school next year, you may request feedback via email from our office about how to strengthen your application. To request a review of your application and make arrangements for this feedback, please email Cathy O’Malley at This email address is being protected from spambots.
