Begin My Application

Please click here to begin your application, and select: "Physiology—Master of Science". Your submitted application will be reviewed once all of the following components are complete:

  • Official MCAT score report | Your official MCAT score report (transcript) must be released to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine (UC COM) via the AAMC/MCAT website. You are also required to enter your AAMC ID# and your 16-digit MCAT verification code within your online application. The MCAT report must show your name, date of birth, AAMC ID#, and your 16-digit verification code.
  • Unofficial university transcript(s)
  • Curriculum vitae or résumé
  • Personal statement
  • Letters of recommendation (minimum of 3)
  • Optional video essay (a very brief video that you will submit during the online application process)

Please verify that your supporting documentation is complete by visiting the Graduate School application portal. Click on "Application Status". Once your supporting documents have been uploaded, please notify Jeannie Cummins. We will then confirm by email that your application is complete and ready for review by the admissions committee.

Since the review of applications for admission will begin on December 1, 2019, it is generally to your benefit to apply early.

MCAT

Your official MCAT score report (transcript) must be released to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine (UC COM) via the AAMC/MCAT website. You are also required to enter your AAMC ID# and your 16-digit MCAT verification code within your online application. The MCAT report must show your name, date of birth, AAMC ID#, and your 16-digit verification code.

Should you apply to the program before you have taken the MCAT or retake the MCAT after applying, please release your scores to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine (UC COM), and send your official MCAT score report (transcript) to Jeannie Cummins. The MCAT report must show your name, date of birth, AAMC ID#, and your 16-digit verification code.

We accept scores from either the old or new MCAT test; however, applicants should keep in mind that very few medical schools will accept MCAT scores that are more than three years old and, although we will consider older MCAT scores, the age of the scores may influence the perceived strength of the overall application.

Letters of Recommendation

A minimum of three letters of recommendation (individual letters or committee letters) are required. We prefer that you enter reference contact details in your online application so that your recommenders will receive an invitation to upload their letter directly.

Alternatively, you may have your letters of recommendation submitted via a letter service (e.g. Interfolio).  Letters must be sent to UC Graduate School by one of the following means:

  • Via email to ucgs@uc.edu
  • Via US mail to:
    Graduate School
    University of Cincinnati
    110 Van Wormer Hall
