To attend John Hopkins University Medical School, applicants should graduate from a competitive undergraduate science program with excellent grades and test scores, obtain undergraduate research and leadership experience and have good references from professors. While different programs at the school have different admission criteria, all require proper preparation before admission.
Johns Hopkins University Medical School offers graduate programs leading to doctorate master’s degrees in medicine, biomedical engineering, pharmacology, neuroscience and health science informatics. Applicants to any of these programs need to complete prerequisite classes at the undergraduate level and take entrance exams required by the particular program the student wants to enter. Students applying to a medical doctorate program require prior coursework in biochemistry. However, students applying to the informatics program do not have this requirement.
Potential applicants should read the application requirements and know the application deadlines for the program they want to enter. Applicants should be sure to contact an admissions representative at the school with questions and to get on a contact list for program changes or upcoming admission events. The admissions office helps the student to understand the admission process and academic requirements and serves as good point of contact for campus tours and other communications.
