Admissions Requirements (Class of 2019)
- Bachelor’s Degree (engineering, biological sciences, physical sciences, mathematics or other health related field preferred).
- Cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 (at the time of application deadline and on first start day of the program) based on a 4.0 scale with preference to applicants possessing a GPA of higher than a 3.25. If a course is repeated (ie. for a better grade) all grades will be incorporated in the computation. This method of calculation is adopted to give fair weight to applicants who attempted the course once.
- Proof of U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status (International applicants are not being accepted at this time because the program is not currently accredited by the U.S. Department of Education).
- Completed Program Application with fee.
International Education Evaluation Process Requirements
Prospective trainees applying for admission and who have completed coursework outside the United States at a non-American institution must have their foreign transcript go through a process called “Credential Evaluation”. This Credential Evaluation is completed by organizations accredited by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).
This Credential Evaluation is conducted by organizations that are accredited by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). A list of these organizations can be found at www.naces.org
The evaluation will determine if the applicant’s foreign degree is equivalent to the degree that the program requires. The evaluation must list the degree equivalency and include a GPA (grade point average) calculation as well as a course-by-course credit evaluation
All applicants meeting program requirements will be scheduled for a formal required interview with the Admissions Committee. A second interview may be necessary if you are a finalist. This second interview will be with our UT EP Heart physicians.
Additional Requirements (If admitted into Program)
Acceptance is contingent upon successful completion of outstanding prerequisites (if any), immunization screening (see below), immigration status clearance, clearance of and mandatory criminal background check.
For applicants reapplying to the program, a new application and fee will be required as will the references. Only the submission of previously submitted official transcripts will be permissible. Any new coursework from the previous application documentation will, however, require you to submit official transcripts.
