Most students come to The Warren Alpert Medical School through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). In addition, we offer three other admission routes for qualified applicants, which results in a remarkably talented and diverse medical student body. Each route has special characteristics, application requirements, and deadlines that are program specific.
The second-largest cohort begins at Brown as undergraduates in the Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME), a combined 8-year baccalaureate/MD program in which students obtain a liberal arts education while completing their premed requirements. Exceptionally strong candidates currently in high school can apply through the PLME route.
