Researching Linkage Programs

Researching Linkage Programs

Students considering linkage should take the following steps:

  • Attend the linkage program information session held by the Postbac Premed Program advisors in the spring semester before the orgo/bio year.
  • Speak with admissions deans and directors at the medical school fair in the spring before the orgo/bio year.
  • Visit linkage schools: tour the facilities and speak with admissions officers, faculty, and medical students. The Premedical Office arranges for visits to most of the linkage schools during the fall of the orgo/bio year.
  • Consult with their advisor about their interest in linkage and the specific schools in which they are interested. Premedical advisors will help determine whether a student is a plausible candidate for specific schools. Such consultations may increase the likelihood of nomination.
