APPLICATION INFORMATION

The application process will begin in September 2016 for the cohort beginning in late August 2017 and the application and accompanying materials will be due on February 27, 2017.

Applicants will be required to complete an online application found here and should be prepared to upload one large PDF document containing the following documentation at the end of the form: 

1. Curriculum Vitae

2. Letter of Intent (no more three pages in length, describing interest in the program, qualifications and area of research interest)

3. Transcript(s) (these may be official or unofficial)

4. TOEFL Score (only if applicable)*

*The MMSc-Med Ed Program requests a copy of an official TOEFL score report from any applicant whose native language is not English. The only exemption from this requirement is anyone who earned a bachelor's or graduate degree from an institution at which English was the sole language of instruction. Applicants who took the TOEFL more than three years ago must repeat the test. The program prefers applicants to submit scores from the Internet based test (IBT) of the TOEFL.

In addition to completing the online application, the program requires three letters of recommendation. Applicants should ask referees to e-mail their letters directly to mmsc_med_ed@hms.harvard.edu. Please note that applications will not be reviewed until the program has all of the documentation mentioned above along with three letters of recommendation.
