Student Admissions Committee
Term: The term of office is three years. Members may not serve on other standing committees (excluding Faculty Forum). There are no limits to the number of terms a member may serve.
Membership: This committee consists of eight elected executive faculty, three elected students, three appointed students and the associate dean for admissions. Elected faculty membership is equally divided between pre-clinical and clinical departments, with no department having more than one representative. The associate dean for admissions serves as chair and is a non-voting member. The dean may appoint additional members from faculty and community physicians.
Responsibilities: The committee selects students for admission in accordance with School of Medicine and University regulations and accreditation standards. The committee establishes policies and criteria for admissions that are forwarded to the Faculty Forum for action. Procedures for selection of students are formulated by the committee in consultation with the associate dean for admissions.
Meeting Dates: The committee meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday, 1:00-3:00pm, during the months of August through March. Members are requested to interview student candidates a minimum of twice per month. Interviews are held most Wednesdays, Thursdays and 1st or 3rd Tuesdays during the months of August through March. Morning interviews are scheduled for 9:30am-11:30am and afternoon interviews are schedules for 2pm-4pm. Interviewers are required to complete an interview summary form for each candidate and then present the candidate to the admissions committee. Members interview on an "as needed" basis for the Guaranteed Entrance to Medical School program. Available members attend pre-orientation for newly admitted students.
