Eligibility

Eligibility

Individuals who are enrolled in or graduates of accredited institutions of higher education in the United States and Canada are eligible to apply. Applicants must have completed the majority of the premedical course requirements within the previous ten years. Applicants who have previously been dismissed, withdrawn, or already graduated from a medical school will be considered ineligible to apply to Alpert Medical School. Applicants to AMS may apply a maximum of three times.

Alpert Medical School considers international applicants who have completed a minimum of one year of coursework in an accredited school in the United States or Canada and who meet all the other premedical course requirements. Funding is limited, and information regarding personal and family financial resources is requested prior to an interview. As an international candidate, you would not be eligible for federally subsidized programs, nor would you be eligible for Alpert Medical School need-based institutional funding, although you may be eligible for limited merit-based funding. Other schools may have more substantial institutional funding available. You should also research outside sources of funding; here is a good place to start.

Alpert Medical School accepts applications from Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) candidates. Some institutional funding may be available but would not cover the full cost of attendance. DACA candidates are currently ineligible for federally subsidized loan programs and therefore are encouraged to seek outside sources of funding.

Technical Standards

Students applying to the medical degree-granting program at Brown University must be capable of meeting the competency requirements expected of all graduates, with or without reasonable accommodation, described in the Student Policies Handbook. Technological compensation can be made for some disabilities in certain of these competency requirements. Candidates accepted for admission who will need special accommodations cannot be admitted unless those supportive services are available, as determined by the Dean of Medicine and Biological Sciences.
