  • 2023 applicants may expect to remain on the wait list for 2-3 years.


  • Starting with the next application period in 2025, applications will be accepted annually. Applicants will need to apply each year for a place in the Program if during the selection process (lottery) their name is not pulled.  The Program will no longer utilize waitlists.

  • The program accepts approximately 24 students per year, depending on available clinical placements.
