Medical Schools by State: A Comprehensive List
Here’s a comprehensive list of medical schools by state as of June, 2017.
We also have two other lists you can search:
—US MD schools by state, and
—US DO schools by state, depending on your desired path.
In the near future, we’ll be expanding all three lists to include (1) links to the schools, (2) tuition costs, (3) GPA/MCAT median, (4) public/private status, and other helpful information on all US MD and DO medical schools.
A great step is to study this list of medical schools by state, both MD and DO programs, as you strategize where to apply. In fact, not doing so is one of the biggest mistakes most medical school applicants make. They either apply to schools with a higher GPA/MCAT score median, so they’re roundly ignored, or they skip some of the most obvious schools with pluses. Here are a few: state schools, schools with an interest in research (if you’re published), schools outside of your region where your scores are a perfect match, schools that cater to specific minority students, schools focused on primary care, and schools in less desirable cities/locations.
Between these lists, there are some 200 MD and DO schools. That’s a ton of choices! Many applicants to medical school start with the assumption that their options are thin. There are lots of state schools (in Texas, as an example) that welcome out-of-state students and are highly rated medical schools. Make sure to apply widely with most schools in your target range, a couple “dream” choices that may be above your range, and then some lower-tier schools to create a safety net. If you’re open to DO schools, applying to 2-3 of those is also a great safety hatch. Here’s the list. With more links and details to come!
