The 2021 CommonApp has closed.  The 2022 CommonApp will open in December 2021.

The  CommonApp provides a central location for medical student research and service opportunities that are available at UCCOM / CCHMC for first-year medical students. This is a general application that includes supplementary fields (Part 3) for specific programs.  For reference only, a copy of the 2021 CommonApp can be found HERE.

Several programs may require you to first establish a relationship with a research mentor before applying. To facilitate your search for potential research mentors, visit the database of faculty mentors who are interested in working with students.

To complete this application, you will need information about yourself, your research program, your mentor, and the programs in which you are interested.

Several existing resources may be helpful for preparing your application, including:

Early submission is highly encouraged.

You will be able to save your progress and re-enter the CommonApp later to submit your completed application.

If you have any questions about the CommonApp during the application process, please email the Research and Industry Relations Committee @

Completed applications are due by Sunday, February 14, 2021, 11:59 pm.
