Graduate admissions in the health professions

If you aren't used to working with pre-health students, or work with them infrequently, it can be hard to keep track of the differences between the expected metrics among the pre-health tracks.

We developed an internal Sharepoint site just for faculty and staff here. The site includes admission statistics and other helpful resources.

Faculty letters of recommendation for medical school

Pre-med students will be encouraged to use the faculty letter of recommendation for medical school form in order to provide letter writers with most of the info they will need. Students will fill out the form, download it as a PDF, and email it to their letter writers. 

If you have questions about what to include or how to format the letter, the AAMC has plenty of resources. Be sure to write letters on UWL letterhead. You can find a template here
