Message from the Dean

Welcome to the T.H. Chan School of Medicine Office of Admissions

I am pleased that you have taken time to learn about UMass Chan Medical School's T.H. Chan School of Medicine. As the Associate Dean for Admissions, I welcome and thank you for visiting our website. Please explore our admissions processMD and MD/PhD degree program, Population-based Urban and Rural Community Health (PURCH) track, and class profiles. Regardless of your current level of engagement in the medical school admissions process, I hope you find our website informative.

We follow AAMC’s guidance in admission-related issues (e.g. MCAT, online and pass/fail courses) and timing of deadlines. Please keep abreast with the AAMC website and our academic requirements webpage. We will continue to follow holistic and applicant-centered processes in admission.

I would like to highlight that UMass Chan began accepting applicants who are not Massachusetts residents in 2015. In 2017, the population-based urban and rural health (PURCH) track welcomed its first cohort of students. I am also excited to announce that we are accepting Canadian applicants as of the 2021-2022 cycle.

As you navigate the school’s website, I hope you will get a sense of the strong, caring, engaged, passionate, and inclusive community that characterizes our school. I look forward for you to join this community as we continue to build together.

Please contact the Office of Admissions at, if we can be of assistance to you.

Best wishes,
