Any student who has withdrawn or has been withdrawn from HMS and wishes to reapply for the MD program must follow all of the processes and procedures of the regular admissions process. In addition, applications for readmission must be supported by two new letters of recommendation as well as by transcripts of any formal academic training taken since leaving Harvard Medical School. Consideration is given to the record of each applicant, the length of absence, the activities undertaken during the absence, and the number of student places available in the class. Readmission, if approved, may be conditional, requiring performance of specific tasks at a specific standard, either prior to or following readmission.
Any student who was required to withdraw from the Medical School ordinarily may not submit an application for readmission until two academic terms [See Section 2.07 for definition of academic terms] have passed.
