The CWRU School of Medicine Linkage Program

Student presenting in class to other students

Climb the ladder to success

The Medical School Admissions Committee at Case Western Reserve University excitedly partners with the following SOM programs:

  • Master of Science in Molecular & Cellular Pathology
  • Master of Science in Applied Anatomy
  • Master of Science in Medical Physiology
  • Post-baccalaureate Readiness Instruction for (Bio)Medical Education program.


We guarantee interviews to CWRU MD applicants from the above programs meeting the following benchmarks:

  • Undergrad GPA ≥ 3.4
  • Anatomy program GPA ≥ 3.5
  • MCAT score ≥ 515
  • Demonstrated highest levels of personal and professional conduct.

This opportunity is exclusively for students who haven't previously interviewed with the CWRU Medical Students Admissions Committee (MSAC). However, the MSAC may interview applicants across multiple cycles based on competitiveness.

It's important to note that the MSAC evaluates all aspects of an application and may interview candidates who don't explicitly meet these criteria, especially if they demonstrate exceptional qualities in other areas.
