Required Prerequisites for UW School of Medicine, effective beginning with the Entering Class of 2023
Please also see the section on our FAQs page: Entering Class of 2023 and later Prerequisite Course Requirements.
International courses can be accepted to fulfill the prerequisites as long as they have been verified by a bona fide credentials evaluator. This service can be provided by such companies as Foundation for International Services, Academic Credentials Evaluation Institute, World Education Services, National Association of Credential Evaluation Services or Association of International Credential Evaluators. The American Medical College Application Services (AMCAS) will not verify your international transcripts. After submitting your AMCAS application, the UWSOM will need an original, official copy of your transcripts sent directly from the foreign institution or in a sealed envelope from the foreign institution, and a transcript evaluation from a bona fide credentials evaluator.
