Senior Associate Dean for Admissions

Welcome to the admissions website of the University of Texas School of Medicine at San Antonio. The admissions process this past year resulted in selecting an outstanding group of students who not only demonstrate superb academic credentials but also have distinguished themselves through personal achievements both during and after their university studies. The grade point average of accepted students is 3.73 (range 2.8 - 4.0) and average MCAT score 31.8 (range 23 - 43). As always, I am very pleased to provide information concerning the admissions process and updates on this year's application cycle.


Currently the Admissions Committee is evaluating applications for the Class of 2019; applicants are being selected to interview based on the holistic review of their applications balancing both academic and non-academic qualifications. All of these qualifications are listed on the admissions website along with important additional information. Interviews will be conducted on Mondays starting Aug. 4th, 2014 through Jan. 12th, 2015.


Our South Texas Clinical Education Campus (STCEC) is a unique learning environment for students in their third year (clinical clerkships) of medical school ( .  Both the San Antonio Clinical Education Campus (CEC) and South Texas CEC are available as clinical education sites through the TMDSAS application process. Applicants will indicate on the TMDSAS application their intent to apply to both programs and will be interviewed in San Antonio for positions at both CECs. A separate interview for South Texas CEC positions is not required. Positions at the South Texas CEC will be filled through the TMDSAS match and not through rolling admissions. Fifteen students will be selected through this process for the South Texas CEC and thereafter on a rolling basis until matriculation.


Further application information is available on the Texas Medical Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS) website (


Best wishes to all applicants to the University of Texas School of Medicine at San Antonio.  Should you have questions not addressed by our website or the TMDSAS website, please email me at
