All required courses must be completed at an accredited 4-year institution. No AP credits may be used in place of an actual course, even if the undergraduate institution grants a credit for the AP coursework. Upper level coursework in the same subject area may replace the listed prerequisite. (Note: All science courses used to satisfy a prerequisite must include a laboratory component, so online coursework will not be acceptable to substitute for hands-on lab credit).
Please see our FAQ for further commentary about prerequisite work.
Every applicant must take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) of the Association of American Medical Colleges. Preferably, this test will be taken in the spring of the year before application; however, it must be taken no later than September of the year in which the candidate applies. For the entering class of 2014, CMSRU will consider applicants who have taken the MCAT between January 2011 and September 2013.
There is no minimum number of clinical observation or volunteer hours for applicants to CMSRU. However, CMSRU is a mission-driven institution. From the beginning, we have built CMSRU upon the idea that Camden is our classroom and our home, and we will strive to improve the health and well-being of those we serve as we teach the art and science of medicine and its delivery. For this reason, we will highly value applicants who have shown evidence of community-consciousness and social responsibility. We value experiences that increase the understanding of diversity and the role it plays in practicing medicine.
