A diverse class is essential to the educational experience of every Feinberg student. To this end, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Office of Admissions work in close partnership to recruit and retain a diverse cohort of students each year.

Utilizing holistic review methods in our admissions process allows us to consider every facet of an application for admission. We consider leadership, research, life experience, service, experiences in health care, interdisciplinary experiences, and many other elements in addition to the academic record.
