The BCMS and ACMS application link can be found on our website during the open admissions cycle. Click the “Apply Here” link and follow the steps for registration, create a user name (i.e. last name) and password, and submit a $50 non-refundable application fee.

All required materials & the $50 non-refundable application fee must be received to progress to the Temple University School of Medicine Admissions Committee for holistic review. The Admissions Committee reviews the entire application: standardized test scores, volunteer experiences, essays, letters of recommendation and transcripts. An Interview (by invitation) is required to be considered for the program. We do not offer phone or Skype interviews.

With acceptance to Temple University School of Medicine Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program students receive a conditional acceptance to the medical school upon successful completion of the program.

If you are not sure which track to apply, the BCMS track is for college graduates who have not taken the basic science courses (or no more than 2 semesters) required for admission to medical school. For those who took the basic sciences courses, we suggest the ACMS track.
