Applying for the DO Program

What qualifications do you need?

Applicants must meet minimum requirements for GPA and MCAT scores, take certain college courses, and meet specific skills and citizenship standards. Make sure you've got everything you need before you apply.

Admission Requirements

Four Campuses, One Application

Our academic curriculum and requirements are the same across each of our locations. As an applicant, you will submit one application to VCOM's central admissions department through AACOMAS, where you will have the option of specifying which campus you prefer. On your secondary application, you will be able to designate other VCOM campuses that you may be interested in. Each applicant will be reviewed by the campus of choice, however, if you have designated other campuses and one of those campuses wishes to interview you, you will be contacted.

When to Apply

The DO program uses a rolling admissions timeline, meaning we fill open positions as we receive applications from qualified candidates — so applying early improves your chances of admission.
