Notification of Interview

Planning is currently underway for the 2022 Interview Cycle and updated information will be published at a later date.

The UofL School of Medicine seeks to admit students who are not only academically prepared for medical education, but demonstrate the competencies needed for success in the medical field, including strong interpersonal and communication skills, resilience, compassion, ethics, and cultural competence. Interviews are conducted as a component of the evaluation process and are required in order to be considered for admission. The Office of Admissions arranges appointments for interviews with all applicants whose qualifications indicate that further consideration is appropriate. If an applicant is eligible for an interview, the applicant will be notified via email.
