HWCOM participates in the American Medical College Application Service® (AMCAS) application process and applications verified by AMCAS will be the first step in the applicant screening process. The deadline to submit the AMCAS application is December 1 of the application year but candidates are encouraged to apply soon after AMCAS application opens for submission at the beginning of June.
Start your application with AMCAS to begin your journey to becoming an MD.
All applicants will receive an HWCOM Secondary Application upon receipt of their verified AMCAS applications. Please see the average statistics for accepted applicants and the Medical School Admission Requirements (MSAR) for additional details.
A $30 non-refundable application fee will be required with submission of the HWCOM Secondary Application. AAMC Fee Assistance Program (FAP) will be honored for an application fee waiver. The HWCOM Secondary Application requires directed essays that further explore the applicant’s interest in medicine and suitability for HWCOM. A passport style photo is requested to be submitted as a part of the HWCOM Secondary Application.
On the HWCOM Secondary Application, each applicant submits an attestation that he or she will abide by HWCOM rules, including the Code of Professional Conduct for Student–Faculty Relationships and technical standards. Applicants should be aware that if accepted, they may request reasonable accommodations for disability as determined by the FIU University Disability Resource Center. All applicants will be required to read these documents and attest that they understand the documents and can and will comply if accepted to HWCOM. Additionally, the applicant must agree to the policy of requiring Level I and Level II background checks and drug testing as well as compliance of all pre-matriculation requirements.
The deadline to submit the HWCOM Secondary Application is January 15 of the application year but candidates are encouraged to submit all materials as soon as possible, as interviews are scheduled only if the application is complete.
