Secondary Application

To receive an invitation to complete the secondary application, applicants must meet all minimum requirements under the MCAT Score, Grade Point Average, Citizenship, and Credit Hours sections.

Academic Requirements

Applicants should meet the following minimum requirements to be considered for a secondary application.

MCAT Score

Applicants with a 495 total MCAT score are typically eligible to receive an invitation to complete our secondary application. Alabama residents with above average academic performance (our average GPA for entering students is typically in the 3.7-3.8 range) with a 493 or 494 total score on the MCAT may be invited to submit a secondary.

  • Scores from the September2022 MCAT dates are the latest that will be considered.
  • A 2020 MCAT score is the earliest score considered for the 2023 entering class.

See the MCAT website for more information.

We will use the most recent MCAT total score for consideration to receive a secondary application. The committee will consider the applicants’ scores from all MCAT tests when evaluating applicants for admission.

Grade Point Average

Alabama residents must have a 3.0 science (BCPM) GPA at the undergraduate level or a 3.0 science (BCPM) GPA after 20 or more BCPM credits at the post-baccalaureate or graduate level to receive the secondary application invitation.Since pass/fail grades are not included in the GPA, they do not count toward the 20 credit requirement at the post-baccalaureate and graduate level to receive the secondary application.

Out-of-state applicants must have a 3.3 science (BCPM) GPA at the undergraduate level or a 3.3 science (BCPM) GPA after 20 or more BCPM credits at the post baccalaureate or graduate level to receive an invitation to complete the secondary application.Since pass/fail grades are not included in the GPA, they do not count toward the 20 credit requirement at the post-baccalaureate and graduate level to receive the secondary application.

All applicants must demonstrate solid knowledge of relevant sciences and the ability to manage a rigorous academic curriculum. You must also have received a "C" or better in all required courses. The GPA minimum requirement does not apply to MSTP program applicants to receive a secondary application.

Credit Hours

Applicants should report at least 90 hours of undergraduate course credit from an accredited U.S. college or university on the AMCAS application. Applicants educated at a college or university not regionally accredited in the U.S. should complete a minimum of 24 credits in biomedical sciences (biology, chemistry, physics, and/or math) at a U.S. accredited institution and submit a course-by-course evaluation from a NACES.org evaluation service for education completed outside the U.S.

All requirements to complete current degree programsmustbe completed by July 1 before matriculation.All college majors are considered equally; however, you should consider how your major prepares you for the rigorous science coursework of medical school and how your major will be useful if not accepted to medical school.

Pass/Fail Grading

While we prefer letter grades to better show preparation for medical school, we understand that the pandemic impacted instruction in 2020 and 2021. We will accept pass or satisfactory grades during semesters when courses were moved from in-person to virtual due to the pandemic.

AAMC PREviewTM professional readiness exam

About the PREview (formerly known as the AAMC Situational Judgment Test)

To further enhance our holistic review process during the 2023 application cycle, we are highly recommending applicants to complete the Association of American Medical Colleges Professional Readiness Exam (AAMC PREviewTM), to assess the pre-professional competencies that our admissions committee believes are essential for success at our medical school and will be increasingly important in meeting the needs of patients and improving the health of all people.

The AAMC PREview exam is an opportunity for applicants to showcase personal and professional characteristics—beyond classroom learning—that will make them a great fit for the UAB Heersink School of Medicine. Since applicants are not required to take the AAMC PREview exam, your application will be considered complete if you do not have an AAMC PREview score. While the admissions committee may see that you did not take the AAMC PREview exam, they will be instructed to disregard missing AAMC PREview scores.

PREviewTM and Admissions Decisions

In the 2023 application cycle, UAB Heersink School of Medicine will not use AAMC PREview scores to eliminate applicants from further consideration. The scores will only be used in a holistic review process to evaluate how an applicant might contribute to the learning environment and profession of medicine.

For applicants who have been invited to complete a secondary application, we still highly encourage to take the AAMC PREview exam if you have not already done so. Doing so will give you an opportunity to display your knowledge of effective and ineffective behaviors across eight core competencies for entering medical students, which include Service Orientation, Social Skills, Cultural Competence, Teamwork, Ethical Responsibility to Self and Others, Reliability and Dependability, Resilience and Adaptability, and Capacity for Improvement.

Timeline

The AAMC PREview exam will be available June – September 2022. For the 2023 application cycle, the AAMC PREview exam will be administered online using remote proctoring. There will be a $100 fee for examinees to take the AAMC PREview exam and release their AAMC PREview scores to all schools they apply to. Students who qualify for the Fee Assistance Program will receive a full fee waiver (no cost). Free preparation materials, including a full-length practice exam, are available through the AAMC.

(Video) Do we have what it takes? Pt 1

Information about the AAMC PREview exam, including preparation materials, test registration, requests for accommodations, and important dates and deadlines is available here.

We encourage 2023 applicants to register for the PREview as soon as possible. We will invite applicants to complete a secondary application and screen applications without receipt of the PREview score; however, we encourage you to have at least registered for the PREview prior to considering you for an invitation to interview.

Bringing their MMI online with Zoom, UAB medicine was buried by the challenges the platform presented. Then they switched to Kira Talent.

Sending out enrollment offers on a rolling basis — from early decisions in October all the way through the last interview day in March — UAB’s admissions team is engaging with applicants throughout most of the year.. “Historically, we would have nine Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) stations and one traditional 20-25 minute interview,” explained Dr. Sullivan.. Approaching the 2022 cycle, UAB’s admissions team realized that the only way to move forward was to invest in an admissions interviewing tool that could deliver the same components of their traditional interview day in a virtual format.. “With hundreds of applicants across nine different programs each moving through nine MMI stations, the data we produce from a single interviewing cycle is substantial,” shared Dr. Sullivan.. Being able to have simultaneous interviews — on a platform that could handle the capacity — was a key factor in UAB’s decision to conduct their interviews with Kira.. “By moving back to simultaneous interviewing on the Kira platform, we’ve shortened our interview day by two hours.”. Across the school’s nine different programs, Kira helped ensure that UAB Medicine was delivering a consistent interviewing experience while still allowing for personalization to suit the unique needs of each program.. “Having that level of platform customization, and also the level of highly personalized support from Kira meant we could spend less time managing the details of interviews and more time focusing on the overall admissions process.”. “With Live Interviewing in Kira, our faculty and students on all four campuses are able to engage in our interviewing process, which means that we now have actual representation of our university in our admissions process.”. “With our virtual admissions process we are no longer forcing applicants to make a decision on their schooling based on whether they can afford to travel to an interview or not,” Dr. Sullivan explained.
