Thank you for visiting Loma Linda University School of Medicine Admissions. Here, we believe skilled and compassionate health care professionals heal more than a patient's disease. They heal the mind, body and spirit of a person in need. This tenet has been at the core of our mission for more than 100 years, and we strive to find applicants whose personal mission aligns with our own. 

In addition to educating future physicians, the School of Medicine offers a broad array of research graduate opportunities, combined degree programs, postgraduate residencies and fellowships, and a pathologists' assistant program. 

We welcome your interest.
