Admissions into the MD/MS in System's Medicine is highly selective and limited to matriculated medical students in their second or third years of study. Medical students who do enroll in the program can expect to add an additional year of study to the traditional four years in order to complete all of the necessary systems medicine coursework. 

Georgetown students that are admitted to the program will be receive a tuition waiver and a stipend to cover living expenses.


The application process follows the general format of applying to a dual degree program at the School of Medicine- with one additional requirement that students undergo an informational interview prior to filling out the application. This interview is designed to give applicants a detailed overview of the program, and to help guide students in determining if this program is a right fit for them. 

Thus, the application procedure is as follows:

  • Second or third year medical students in the spring semester of their first year of study contact Dr. Sona Vasudevan to schedule an informational interview. 
  • Following the interview, students then complete the application formally through the Online Application form. The application submission deadline has been extended to July 1st
  • Students will be notified in early July of our decision.

Application elements, including letters of recommendation, are required to be submitted through the Online Application system. Only transcripts and test scores should be submitted independently by the applicant's previous academic institution(s) and testing agency.
