Welcome to Boston University School of Medicine

Dr. Antman, School of Medicine Dean and Medical Campus Provost Welcome to the Admissions web site for Boston University School of Medicine– the portal through which you will, I hope, learn about the range of clinical, educational, and research opportunities that make our campus a vibrant, lively, and exciting place to be.

Our campus comprises a medical school, dental school, school of public health, a large division of graduate medical sciences, and a very busy hospital. Despite our size, however, we pride ourselves on the individual attention and support we offer to every student. We never lose sight of our responsibility to guide, support, and teach our medical students. I have had the privilege, during the course of my career, to work in several other major health sciences centers, and I believe our BU faculty is second to none.

Our medical school is inextricably linked to our principal teaching hospital, Boston Medical Center (BMC). BMC is the largest safety net hospital in New England and serves as the base for an extensive network of sites for ambulatory and inpatient care for patients representing all parts of our society. From core primary care services for the City of Boston, to complex, cutting edge referral services for patients from all over the world, students are part of the clinical team. Here at BU, students learn the basics of clinical practice by actually contributing to the care of extremely challenging patients.

Boston University Medical Campus is a thriving academic medical center with outstanding opportunities for medical education, with faculty dedicated to our diverse patient population, opportunities for electives in South America, India and Africa, and exposure to cutting edge research. Our school is graced by a large number of exceptionally well-qualified applicants. If, in the end, the admissions process brings you to BU, I will be delighted to help you begin your transition into this remarkable profession of medicine.
