The Admissions Committee reviews applications holistically and selects applicants who demonstrate an above average proficiency in areas such as academic history, personal statement, letters of recommendation and medical experience/training to be considered for admission. Applicants are encouraged to submit applications when they have completed all the requirements for the HWCOM MPAS program, the program only reviews CASPA verified submissions and does not receive documentation submitted after verification of the CASPA application.
