MD and Md-PhD candidates for admission to the MU School of Medicine should apply through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). Students who demonstrate financial need may qualify for an AMCAS application fee waiver.
The School of Medicine emails each applicant with an open file a supplemental application. Applicants must complete and return this application with a $110 fee by 5 p.m. Dec. 1.
After an initial screening, the School of Medicine admissions committee will invite applicants who are seriously being considered for interviews.
The University of Missouri School of Medicine plans to offer 400 interview slots for the entering class of 2020. It is possible that more slots may be available; however, applicants are strongly advised to complete their applications early, since consideration for an interview slot will be conducted on a rolling basis as applications are received.

An invitation to interview at the University of Missouri School of Medicine is an indication of your initial impression on the admissions committee. It is quite an accomplishment. This is an opportunity to see if the MU School of Medicine is as right for you as we think you might be for us.
Your interview day is planned so that you have the opportunity to mingle with other applicants, chat with current students and ask questions about what it is like to be a medical student at Mizzou.
Most interview days include up to 10 students, which are then divided into morning and afternoon interview groups. Interviews take place on Mondays through Wednesdays during the week. We require at least two one-on-one interviews with admissions committee members.
