Excellence in Education
It is an exciting time to enter into the field of medicine, and the number of paths on which a career in medicine can take you is endless. The first step is thinking about at which school you would like your journey into medicine to begin. At Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, we strive to make the application process as simple as possible so that you can have time to explore the path ahead of you.
Diversity Statement for the Office of Admissions
The Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine aspires to be an inclusive environment, believing that the creative energy and variety of insights that result from diversity are a vital component of the intellectual rigor and social fabric of the university.
As a scholarly community, our School of Medicine is inclusive of all people of all racial, ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, national and international backgrounds, welcoming diversity of thought, pedagogy, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, political affiliation and disability.
The goal of the our admissions process is to further the mission of the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, which includes excellence in medical education, discoveries in translational science, and improving community health. To best meet the needs of the diverse populations in Ohio and beyond, and to achieve the goals of the institution, the School of Medicine's admissions process uses a balanced and holistic approach that considers an applicant's academic metrics, experiences, and personal attributes in order to achieve the educational benefits of a diverse student body and future physician work force. The Admissions Committee also recognizes that many applicants who are underrepresented in medicine come from geographically, socioeconomically, and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds, and that people from these backgrounds are more likely to eventually serve disadvantaged, underserved and marginalized populations. As such, our admissions selection approach also encourages consideration of disadvantaged status, as broadly defined, in the decision-making process.
