COMPLETE YOUR APPLICATION TO START YOUR MD IN JANUARY 2022

WHY JANUARY

January generally has a smaller class size, ensuring you'll get event more personalized, one-on-one attention from professors studying the basic scienes. If you need it, you could get some extra breathing room and time to prepare for the United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 2 CK and CS exams, as well as scheduled electives. And, in some cases you may be able to participate in Match, though this is contingent upon a variety of factors, such as whether you finish your foundations of medicine coursework on time or participate in a tracked clinical program.

 

SHOULD YOU CONSIDER STARTING MEDICAL SCHOOL IN MAY OR SEPTEMBER?

AUC operates under a rolling admissions policy. This means we offer three start dates- September, January, and May. This gives you the freedom to start medical school when it's right for you.


Benefits of starting in May:

  • These two start terms generally have smaller class sizes, meaning you'll get even more personalized, one-on-one attention from professors as you're studying the basic sciences.
  • If you need it, you could get some extra breathing room and time to prepare for the United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 2 CK and CS exams, as well as schedule electives.
  • In some cases, you may be able to participate in an earlier Match, though this is contingent upon a variety of factors—such as whether you finish your foundations of medicine coursework on time or participate in a tracked clinical program. For questions about when you would likely compete for a residency based on when you start at Ross, please contact our Office of Admissions.

Benefits of starting in September: 

  • Many medical students, including those enrolling in international or Caribbean medical schools, choose to start their studies in September.
  • This start date mirrors the enrollment model used at many US medical schools.
  • The incoming September class is typically Ross Med's largest.
