Re-Applying to Health Professions Schools

If you have previously applied to medical school or other health profession programs and are considering re-applying in the upcoming cycle, please watch the recording of the Applying with HCA Workshop. As part of the re-application process, you will be asked to submit a Health Careers Advising Dossier (HCAD) with a re-applicant supplement by April 5, 2024. Both are available in the Google Classroom site.

Re-applicants are expected to demonstrate how they have strengthened their candidacy by engaging with relevant clinical, research, academic, professional, or volunteer activities since the previous application cycle. As you consider how you might strengthen your candidacy and whether you are ready to re-apply in the upcoming cycle, we encourage you to reflect on your strengths and areas with room for improvement - for example:
