What if my college or university does not provide a Pre-Health Committee letter?
If you do not have access to a letter of recommendation from your school’s Pre-Health Committee or Pre-Health Advisor, you may substitute a letter from a basic Science Faculty member, or anyone who can speak to your ability to successfully complete a rigorous medical school curriculum.
Do you require a letter of recommendation from a DO?
RVUCOM requires a letter from a healthcare provider who has worked with the candidate (DO or MD preferred). Because of the challenges of receiving letters due to the pandemic, RVU will also accept a letter from any health professional the candidate has worked with, regardless of whether or not they were directly supervised. For all required letters please go to the Admissions Requirements located in the Additional Resources panel.
Do you accept transfer students?
Requests for transfer are only considered from candidates in good standing at other colleges of osteopathic medicine and to those entering their third year. You may find more information about transfers by visiting the Admissions Process page located in the Additional Resources panel.
What are your board scores and pass rates?
RVU has consistently ranked among the top board scores of all Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine. You may find the most current listing of board scores and pass rates at the Institutional Planning and Assessment page.
