Xavier University School of Medicine employs a holistic approach for the selection of medical students. This means that an applicant is reviewed based on more than just their academics. Other factors include an applicant’s experiences, as well as personal attributes to determine their capabilities. These factors are considered in combination with how the individual might contribute value as a medical student and physician.

Admissions Guidelines

Application requirements for prospective students include previous coursework, certain documentation, and writing samples. Students are reviewed holistically for admission into the program.

Xavier’s goal is to make a quality medical education as affordable as possible. There are multiple financial aid options for students along with scholarships for strong academics for both pre-med and MD students.
