MD/PhD Admissions Requirements


Application to the M.D./Ph.D. program requires only an application to Georgetown School of Medicine; a separate application to the graduate program of interest is not required. Therefore, the GRE is not required.

There are no specific GPA or MCAT score cutoffs used for admission to the M.D./Ph.D. program. However, most successful applicants have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and a cumulative MCAT score in the 80th percentile or higher. Apply as an M.D./Ph.D. candidate via the AMCAS system (deadline – November 1, 2022). This will require several extra essays at this initial step. When you receive the secondary application, make sure to denote that you are an M.D./Ph.D. applicant. The secondary application is due by November 25, 2022 (slightly earlier than the deadline for applications to the regular M.D. program). Admissions to the M.D./Ph.D. program are NOT done on a rolling basis; instead, all the applications are considered together after the due date and selected applicants are offered an interview. Interviews will be conducted over approximately one month in late January/early February 2023.

Only U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply for the M.D./Ph.D. program.
