Step 1:  Make sure that you meet the admissions prerequisites and requirements.
Step 2:  Complete the AMCAS Application.

Once AMCAS has notified Medical Student Admissions that an applicant is interested in applying to the Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont; we send out an initial contact email with all the information necessary for starting the secondary application process.  We do not pre-screen information from AMCAS.  Please note the deadlines listed to the right.

Step 3.  Complete the CASPer test

Beginning this year, the Larner College of Medicine will require all applicants to complte the Computer-Based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics (CASPer) Test to assist with our selection process.  Successful completion of CASPer is mandatory in order to maintain admissions eligibility.

CASPer is a 90-minute online test which assesses non-cognitive skills that we believe are important for successful students and graduates of our program.   In implementing CASPer, we hop to further enhance fairness and objectivity in our selection process.  For more information about CASPer, please review the FAQs here.

Step 4.  Complete the UVM Larner College of Medicine secondary/supplemental application. 

An application fee must be paid at the time the supplemental application is submitted.  Exceptions are made for those applications who apply for and receive a fee waiver by the AAMC Fee Assistance Program.  Contact us at if you need a waiver.  Application fees for the supplemental application are non-refundable.

The deadline for receipt of the supplemental application is January 2, 2018.  Please note that the Office of Admissions will be closed for winter break beginning at noon on December 22, 2017, through January 2, 2018.  It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all materials are received by the deadline as extensions cannot be granted.

  • Occasionally, the supplemental application doesn't display all courses taken.  Please check off the ones you see and we will look for the rest.  You can indicate relevant information in the comments section regarding courses as well. 
  • Frequency should be based off the time of participation during the run of the activity
  • Essay questions can be any length and should include your personal background and professional interests
