The BCMS and ACMS application link can be found on our website during the open admissions cycle. Click the “Apply Here” link and follow the steps for registration, create a user name (i.e. last name) and password, and submit a $50 non-refundable application fee. If you are not sure which track to apply, the BCMS track is for college graduates who have not taken the basic science courses required for admission to medical school. For those who took the basic sciences courses, we suggest the ACMS track.


Once all supplemental materials are received, the application is verified and sent for review by the Admissions Committee. Reviews are conducted throughout the entire application cycle. We review the entire application: standardized test scores, volunteer experiences, essays, and the passion the applicant conveys about becoming a doctor. Our review process is lengthier than other postbac programs because accepted Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program students receive a reserved seat in Temple University School of Medicine upon successful completion of the program. An Interview (by invitation) is required to be considered for the program. We do not offer phone or Skype interviews.


Email confirmations will be sent upon receipt of the following:

1. Upon registration
2. Receipt of submitted application and $50 application fee
3. When application is complete
4. Invitation to interview
5. Final decision (to all applicants)


Re-Applicants must resubmit all application materials including letters of reference.
