Seattle seeks new members for the admissions committee

Published on

Admissions is now accepting applications for new members to the Committee on Admissions for the Seattle cohort. This is an opportunity to interview prospective medical school applicants and help shape the future of medicine.

There is a time commitment, but members regard participation on this committee as a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Learn more here.

Our Committee does holistic review and 3-person virtual panel interviews. Executive Committee (experienced Admissions Committee members) screen, lead the panel interviews, and meet to make final decisions. New members participate as interviewers and their impressions of applicants are taken into consideration during the final decisions.

In Admissions, our goal is to select a regionally representative and inclusive student body that will go on to for an increasingly diverse public. We encourage faculty from all backgrounds, especially those who are first gen and/or underrepresented in medicine, to participate if you feel you have capacity.

Members are expected to prepare for and conduct approximately 20 interviews (6 or 7 half days) during specific weeks from October–February. This is a significant time commitment, but members regard participation on this committee as a rewarding and enjoyable experience. If you are interested in joining the Committee, please email the Admissions Team by June 30 for more information.
