Since our interview and admission decisions are made on a rolling basis (based on the date of completion of your file), it is very important that you complete your file as early as possible. This includes your Secondary Application, evaluation letters, and payment of your Secondary Application fee. Our class is typically filled and oversubscribed in late December or early January.

Interview Dates for the 2017-2018 Admissions Cycle

Interviews for the 2017-2018 cycle are scheduled at the College of Medicine Building from late August through March on a two-week rotation basis. Invitations are e-mailed to selected applicants after their completed files have been screened for competitiveness. Recipients of the e-mailed invitation may sign up for an available interview date on an interactive calendar provided to them. Early Decision interviews are given top priority through September 15 in order to accommodate the AMCAS decision rule of notification by October 1. Please note the specific dates  reserved exclusively for the two-day Rural Physician Leadership Program interviews that require both a regional site visit to Morehead and St. Claire Regional Medical Center on Friday followed by a visit to the University of Kentucky the next morning, Saturday, in Lexington.
