The Vanderbilt University School of Medicine (VUSM) has changed its admission guidelines to no longer require a set number of courses. Instead, it will encourage applicants to demonstrate competency in four recommended categories.

Effective for the class of 2017, VUSM admissions officers will assess applicants’ competency in biology, chemistry/biochemistry, mathematics/statistics and physics, and social sciences and communication. Applicants will be assessed based on their academic achievement, MCAT performance, and letters of evaluation, according to the director of admissions.
