Application Process

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine pioneered modern medical education at our founding and is dedicated today to developing medicine’s future leaders. In our search for students who embody such promise, we look for applicants who demonstrate not just high academic achievement but also leadership qualities, a dedication to service, an ability to work collaboratively and a commitment to medicine. If this describes you, we encourage you to apply. 

Our Committee on Admission receives many applications, but every single one is personally reviewed by a committee member. Our advice? We admit people, not grade point averages or test scores, so be yourself. We value diversity in all its forms, and we want to get to know you.

Thank you for your interest in Johns Hopkins. Now let’s get started.
