Harvard University expects students to be able to think freely and conduct specalized research on their own.

The simple task of researching the admission requirements for Harvard Medical School should be well in your grasps if you wish to attend.

However Medical school in the United States is a graduate program, meaning that you must hold a Bachelor's degree or higher to even be eligble for admission.

The requirements on in the link below, the rest of the research you should do yourself.

Gabriel Said:

Does Harvard Medical School admit international graduate students for further studies??

We Answered:

Directly from their website:


I am a foreign student. Will that affect my chances of getting in to HMS?
Foreign students who have studied for at least one year at an accredited institution in the United States or Canada, and have completed the requirements, are eligible to apply at HMS. International applicants should make every effort to take the majority of required courses at an accredited college or university in the United States or Canada. Foreign students who do not have a baccalaureate or advanced degree from an institution in the U.S. or Canada are rarely offered admission.

Do I need to take the TOEFL to test my English fluency?
You do not need to take the TOEFL. However, we do require, at minimum, one year of previous education taught in the United States or Canada as a prerequisite to admission. Fluency in English is expected.

My undergrad degree is from an institution outside of the United States and Canada. Can I still apply to HMS?
A limited number of required courses taken outside the U.S. or Canada may be used to fulfill requirements, to be determined on a case-by-case basis. Every effort should be made to take the majority of required courses at an accredited college or university in the U.S. or Canada. In any case, at least one year of full-time academic work in the U.S. or Canada is required. Foreign students who do not have a baccalaureate or advanced degree from an institution in the United States or Canada are rarely offered admission.

Are international students eligible for financial aid?
International Students are eligible to apply for need-based financial institutional scholarships and loans. More information can be found at the HMS Financial Aid Office website "

Maureen Said:

Approximately how many places would be reserved for international students at an american medical school?

We Answered:

Sorry. In the United States the schools are not regulated by the government like they are in most of the rest of the "developed" world. This means that they are all different, some are drastically different than others, there is no way that you can generalize about American universities. In the US your grades and MCAT are only part of the picture. They want you to have at least a few hundred volunteer hours at a hospital, good schools also want research work, publications are persuasive as well. They also like people who are not biology or health science majors, they make up the lowest percentage of applicants, there are 10 times too many of them, and schools want to have a strong, diverse student body. So as long as you took the required handful of courses, they love art an music majors! So those two things (which are almost exclusively considered in other countries, at least grades are) are only part of a big picture in the U.S. There is no way to tell how many seats there are for international students at schools, some may not hold any, some will hold a good handful.
