ROME Admissions Process and Application

Admission Process


Admission to the ROME Program will begin during the first semester of the first year.   First-year TCOM students will have an opportunity to attend an informational session during the first semester.  The application will become available in mid-July and will remain open until the first week in November. Applicants will be asked to provide basic demographic information and will be given the opportunity to describe their interest in rural and underserved medical care as well as global health and cross-cultural interests and experiences.  After submission, applications will be reviewed by ROME faculty and applicants will be contacted to set up interviews.  Interest and motivation for training for rural/underserved/international medicine will be assessed as well as academic fitness for the curriculum.  After admission, preparation will begin to enroll in the ROME Program, which will begin the following January.
