Letters of Recommendation
Letters of recommendation must be processed through AMCAS.
Please visit the AMCAS website for information on how recommenders should submit their materials.
Once a letter is submitted to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, applicants are giving permission to the College to certify the document.
Letters of recommendation sent directly to the College of Medicine will not be considered. It is the responsibility of the applicant to inform recommenders of the proper protocol. View Frequently Asked Questions regarding Letters of Recommendations.
