Graduate Admissions

Graduate Medical Sciences at Boston University School of Medicine is home to cutting-edge research, bio-science innovation and medical technology. Along with our location in Boston’s historic South End comes world-renowned faculty working in collaboration with clinical investigators at our affiliated teaching hospital, Boston Medical Center. Whether you are interested in a career in healthcare, biomedical research, biotechnology or academia, our mission is to help you reach those goals while enjoying all that Boston has to offer.

Boston University’s recovery planning is focused on the fall semester, and the resumption of our on-campus, in-person programs in late August.  We are planning accordingly and will incorporate the best public health practices into those plans so that members of the BU community will feel comfortable and safe on campus upon their return for fall semester. If for some reason public health authorities do not allow universities to re-open their residential campuses at that time, our planning will explore other alternatives, including the possibility of restarting later in the year.

We realize that standardized tests for all programs may be disrupted due to COVID-19 and are adapting admissions requirements accordingly. Please email your program contact directly to see if the requirement has been waived or if alternative credential may be used.
