Please note that personal interviews are not conducted. The Admissions Office staff
is available for counseling either by telephone, e-mail or appointment.
Students may declare a degree concentration at any time after matriculation. Please
note that a 3.00 gpa in foundation year courses and a personal interview is required
in order for approval of a Master's degree concentration.
The admissions process for the graduate program in Biomedical Sciences is not related
in any way to the admissions process for the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine program
on either campus at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. This is not a bridge
program for the DO admissions process. Application to the PCOM DO program is comprehensive
and competitive. The Faculty Committee on Admissions recommends applicants to the
DO program have at least an 8 or higher on each section of the MCAT.
A completed application and $50 application fee
Official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate course work
Completion of all undergraduate pre-professional science requirements (eight credit
hours each of biology, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physics)
(Biochemistry is strongly recommended)
Official reports of standardized test scores: MCAT, DAT, OAT, GRE or PCAT.
One letter of recommendation from the pre-professional advisor/committee or a science faculty
member of the applicant's undergraduate institution
Evidence of commitment to a career in the health profession and/or potential for admission

All application materials for Philadelphia campus applicants should be forwarded to
the Office of Admissions at the Philadelphia campus.
The Admissions committee screens the application and selects the new students. Following
the completion of the admissions process, each applicant is notified of the Admissions
committee decision in writing including any conditions that must be satisfied prior
to or following enrollment.
As an applicant to PCOM's Biomedical Sciences program, you are responsible for ensuring
that all admissions materials are completed accurately and submitted in a timely manner.
In effort to foster the safety and well-being of the entire campus community, as well
as to ensure that students accepted to PCOM will be permitted to perform clerkships/internships
required to successfully complete their degree requirements, PCOM requires all first
year students to complete a criminal background check prior to matriculation. All
students must have their criminal background checks processed through PreCheck. The
Admissions Office will send notification of the process after confirmation of enrollment
and must have this information on file prior to orientation; students will not be
allowed to start classes without this information.
Prior to enrollment, all candidates are required to complete the college's Technical Standards for Admission and Matriculation
