The JMP seeks applicants who are motivated and prepared to investigate biological, behavioral, or policy-related aspects of health and health care systems leading to completion of a Master of Science thesis.
The JMP welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. The faculty is committed to increasing the number of physicians in the profession from populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession.
To apply to the MS/MD UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program, applicants must file an application via the on-line AMCAS application by designating the School of Medicine at UCSF. The application deadline is October 15 of each year.
Applicants who are selected by UCSF to submit a secondary application must check the JMP box on the secondary application to indicate interest in the JMP. After checking the JMP box, applicants will be prompted to provide additional JMP-specific materials, including two short essay questions. Only applicants who have checked the JMP box on their UCSF secondary application will be considered for JMP admission.
