The Admissions Committee uses a holistic process to ensure the applicant pool and student body is broadly diverse in compliance with SJBSM’s mission, vision, goals and student profile statements as approved by the council of Deans. When considering applicants for admission, the Admissions Committee reviews all appropriate information including academic, personal, experiential, and demographic data in the selection.


Final Decisions

The Admissions Committee reviews applicants during the “rolling admission” phase from December to May. Notification of admission may begin as early as January. NOTE: Our committee does not review applications in the order they are submitted OR chronologically by interview date. Decisions by the Admissions Committee are final. 


Upon Acceptance 

Upon Acceptance a letter will be sent by the Admissions Office to the applicants via e-mail. If the applicant accepts the admission offer, he/she must submit the following documents:

  • Copy of birth certificate
  • Health Certificate
  • Immunization Certificate (PVAC 3 –form)
  • Physician’s Report
  • One "2 x 2" photo
  • AMCAS criminal background check report (If a criminal record appears in the results, the acceptance will be revoked)
  • Technical Standards Receipt
  • Information Regarding Admissions Document

Applicants accepting an offer of admission must confirm their acceptance and reserve their seat within ten (10) calendar days by submitting a money order or certified check for the amount of $100.00 dollars, payable to San Juan Bautista School of Medicine. This amount will be refundable until May 15th and will be credited towards tuition fees. Admission is granted only for the academic year the applicant has applied for.


Technical Standards and Criminal Background Check

All accepted applicants meet San Juan Bautista School of Medicine technical standards which define the physical, mental, emotional, and social abilities that support success in medical school. They must also complete a criminal background check to ensure patient safety.
