New Student Checklist

Admissions Checklist: Due by June 24, 2024

  • Background Check: Admission to our Medical School is contingent upon a satisfactory identity/background check. Permission to begin this check will be requested via email from Certiphi Screening, Inc. This is performed because you will begin clinical exposure to patients during the first semester of your first year of medical school. For the safety of our patients and for your own protection, a background check is performed on all of our accepted students. 
  • Submit your final official transcripts to Mrs. Laura Yusick in Admissions.
  • Complete the University’s Health Background Form, which needs the signature of a health care provider and a PPD. Submit to UB Student Health Services (address on top right of form).

  • You will be registered for your M1 courses by the Office of Student and Academic Affairs by July 12, 2024, provided that any outstanding HOLD(s) on your account has been resolved.
