MBS Students and MD Interviews at Geisinger Commonwealth

Based on meeting established criteria listed below, current MBS students and graduates of the program will be guaranteed an interview for the MD program.  

  • Graduates of the MBS program will be given an interview for the Doctorate of Medicine (MD) program at Geisinger Commonwealth if they are in the top 20% of the class (that equates to 13 students from the class of 2015), have a minimum 3.0 undergraduate science grade point average, scored a minimum of a 26 or 502 on the MCAT, and have submitted Letters of Recommendation (LoR) from Geisinger Commonwealth faculty supporting their candidacy.
  • Current students in the MBS program will be given an interview for the MD program at Geisinger Commonwealth if they are in the top 20% of the class based on the fall semester grades (that equates to 14 students from the class of 2016), have a minimum 3.25 undergraduate science grade point average, scored a minimum of a 26 or 502 on the MCAT, and have submitted at least one LoR from a Geisinger Commonwealth faculty member supporting their candidacy.

This process is in effect for the 2016 MD application cycle. 

Graduates and current MBS students who do not meet the above-mentioned criteria may still be invited for an MD interview if their application credentials merit one.
