Please contact the Admissions Office before submitting your supplemental application at medadmissions@uvm.edu or (802) 656-2154

For the MD Program

We require a recommendation from the Premedical Advisor or Committee at your college or university. If your school does not have an advisor or committee, you must provide three letters of recommendation from professors adhering to the following guidelines:

  • Two letters must be from professors in the sciences with whom you have taken classes.
  • One additional letter must be from a non-science professor with whom you have taken a class.

You may submit one additional letter of your choice. Please do not submit more than four (4) letters of recommendation.

It is an applicant's responsibility to ensure that they adhere to these guidelines and submit the required letters by the deadline. If you cannot adhere to the above guidelines due to the fact that you have been out of school for several years, etc, please contact the admissions office at medadmissions@uvm.edu.
