Post-Bacc Program MS in Medical Physiology, Field of Study: Medical Physiology (MS-B)

 

Use the university's online Application  

 

Letters of Recommendation:

The names and email addresses for three references should be entered into the online system.  The letters of recommendation can then be entered into the system directly by the references. This is the preferred method. Alternatively, references can send letters directly to msmpadmissions@case.edu.  Letters can also be submitted via Interfolio to msmpadmissions@case.edu. If the letters of recommendation will arrive by any method other than the online application system, the applicant should still enter the references’ names and email addresses into the online system. Please do not submit the same letter multiple times through different methods. This delays the processing time.

Transcripts:

Official transcripts should be mailed to Dr. Michelle Monasky.  Unofficial transcripts can be submitted along with the online application (preferred) or emailed to msmpadmissions@case.edu to expedite the department review process and notification of decision. However, official acceptance by the School of Graduate Studies, which follows the department review, requires that all official transcripts are first received. If the official transcript shows that the applicant has not yet graduated with an undergraduate degree, a new transcript showing the graduation will have to be submitted before the applicant can begin graduate studies. Please make sure that all unofficial transcripts are legible and include the name of the institution and student.

Standardized Test Scores:

GRE, MCAT, DAT, PAT, or PANCE scores are required for the application process. TOEFL or IELTS scores are additionally required for international students only. Of the GRE, MCAT, DAT, PAT, or PANCE, only one exam is required. For international students, additionally either the TOEFL or IELTS is required, but not both. GRE scores should be sent to CWRU using the school code 1105. MCAT Score Reports, DAT, PAT, PANCE, TOEFL, and IELTS scores (if applicable) should be emailed in PDF format to msmpadmissions@case.edu using a clear version that includes the applicant’s name and date of birth on the same page as the scores.

Curricula Vitae (CV)/Resume and Personal Statement:

A CV or resume is optional and can be submitted along with the online application. A personal statement is required and should be submitted along with the online application.

Admission is granted on a rolling basis. Applications are processed faster when the applicant first completes the online application and accompanying documents are received afterwards. If an applicant submits accompanying materials before submitting the online application, the online application system will not immediately reflect whether the accompanying materials have been received. All documents sent to msmpadmissions@case.edu should be in PDF format and contain the applicant's name in the attachment. The applicant will be notified of the department’s decision by e-mail. The School of Graduate Studies will send accepted students an e-mail, and students must follow the link in the e-mail and accept the position in Hobson, the online system used for the application process. When a student accepts the offer in Hobson, a student identification number will be generated by the School of Graduate Studies. We strongly recommend that students who know they will attend the program formally accept the offer as soon as possible, since formal acceptance of the program by the student is required before a student identification number is issued. This identification number is necessary to apply for financial aid and register for classes. These processes take time and are out of the control of the department.

Everyone should apply to the Plan-B MS in Medical Physiology program. If you are interested in enrolling in the Plan-A MS in Medical Physiology program (requiring Research Thesis), the dual MS/MBA degree program or an area of concentration (AOC) after the first year, you should indicate this in your personal statement. Students can enroll in the entire program as Internet students and complete the program online. However, students should understand that the Internet courses are just as intensive as the in-class courses, and that enrolling in the program full-time requires a full-time commitment to be successful. We will begin accepting applications for Fall 2017 on October 3, 2016.

Deadlines for 2017:

  • Rolling admission for Fall 2017 begins October 3, 2016.
  • June 19, 2017: Online application form and personal statement due
  • July 17, 2017: All other accompanying material (i.e. letters of recommendation, transcripts, test scores) due
  • August 01, 2017: Absolute last date for accepted students to accept offer in Hobson to guarantee placement in the program. Early acceptance, if possible, is encouraged to expedite financial aid and visa processing, if applicable.

Successful applicants typically have:

  • MCAT scores totaling around 25 (old scores) or 500 (new scores).
  • DAT scores totaling around 18.
  • GRE scores on the Verbal, Quantitative, and Analytical components of the exam greater than the 40th percentile.
  • Cummulative undergraduate grade point average of greater than 2.9.
  • Good foundation in physical/chemical/biological sciences.
  • International applicants must have a TOEFL score of at least 90 or IELS score of at least 7.0, or prove to the satisfaction of the Graduate School that the medium of instruction was English.

We have no absolute criteria for selecting applicants based on these standardized exams or undergraduate grade point averages.  Each student is evaluated on the merits of the total application: standardized test scores, undergraduate and graduate grade point averages, letters of recommendation (3), and an application essay (personal statement) describing their interest in the program and career plans.
