MD Program Admissions
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai attracts the nation's top applicants. We seek students with the strongest academic credentials who are committed to both science and service and believe that physicians play an important role in society. Our goal is to train outstanding professionals who are prepared to enter the medical field as informed leaders and advocates, able to advance science and clinical care, and capable of promoting change.
We offer two options for admission: the Regular Entry and the Early Assurance.
Regular Entry: The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai participates in the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) of the Association of American Medical Colleges. Candidates for admission should file their AMCAS application no later than October 15 of the year preceding the one for which admission is sought. Additional information will be requested of all applicants. Applicants submitting an AMCAS application will be contacted by email and directed to a web site where they can complete our online supplemental application.
Supplemental applications can be submitted from July 1 through November 15. The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has a rolling admissions process. The earliest date of notification of acceptance is generally November 15. Applicants who have been offered admission to the school must respond within two weeks after receipt of notification.

Early Assurance: FlexMed is the early assurance program at the Icahn School of Medicine offering college sophomores from any major early acceptance, exempting them from most of the traditional pre-med science requirements and from taking the MCAT. Applicants interested in FlexMed must apply during their sophomore year of college. FlexMed applications are not submitted through AMCAS and can be accessed directly from our website. Applicants must have completed either one year of biology, one year of chemistry, or one year of physics in order to apply. Applications must be completed by January 15 and decisions will be communicated by the following July 1.
