Priority will be given to students who submit their supplemental application by October 1.
AMCAS charges $170 for an application that includes one medical school designation and $41 for each additional school you designate.
We charge a nonrefundable fee of $100 to process your supplemental application. We will not process it until we receive the fee.
If you’re experiencing financial hardship, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) may waive your AMCAS application fee through its Fee Assistance Program.
If you receive a fee waiver from the AAMC, we will waive our secondary application fee as well.
Based on our curriculum, we strongly encourage you to take a statistics course as well as courses in biochemistry, genetics, and molecular biology.
We encourage you to augment your prerequisite courses with advanced science or engineering courses that meet your interests.
Research experience gives you a level of expertise and understanding above that achieved in standard laboratory courses.
Outstanding applicants to our program have significant research experience either within a structured program or as a volunteer or staff member. They have also published their research and presented it at professional conference presentations.
Because your goal is to be a physician-scientist, we provide the financial support that sets you on the path to the career of your choice.
Our students often also successfully apply for awards, fellowships, and other supplemental funding, including prestigious F30 awards.
As part of UB’s PhD Excellence Initiative, the university will support the cost of broad-based fees for PhD students who are full-time and fully funded, starting in the 2021-22 academic year. Covered fees include the Comprehensive fee, academic excellence and success fee, student activity fee, and the international student fee, where applicable.
