MD Program

Thank you for your interest in learning more about the excellent medical education offered at WMed.

Our goal is to attract students from across the nation who are prepared academically and socially to succeed in medical school. We understand you’re more than your MCAT scores and GPA. We value students who:

  • Work together as a team
  • Demonstrate compassion
  • Have a dedication to serve others
  • Know how to problem solve
  • Can communicate effectively
  • Make decisions with integrity

Our holistic review process balances an applicant’s unique qualities and life experiences, with their academic accomplishments. We look forward to learning about your background and future goals as you begin your life-long study of medicine.

We encourage you to learn more about our application process and admissions requirements, unique integrated curriculum, and our students.
