Admission Requirements and Criteria

What We're Looking For

The Medical Admissions Committee seeks applicants who will become leaders and role models in the practice of medicine and the advancement of human health.

The Committee especially values intellectual curiosity, prior experience in research or the clinical realm, a demonstrated commitment to serving others, integrity, and enthusiasm.

All applicants must present a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.00 (on a 4.00 scale). Applicants who have not yet completed a baccalaureate degree may apply to Alpert Medical School. However, the baccalaureate degree program must be completed prior to matriculation.

Brown University does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, age, disability, status as a veteran, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. A strong affirmative action program is maintained.
