Selection Procedure

Students having admission requirements met by the application deadline will be considered for selection. Those eligible will be selected based on highest total points from the Multi-Criteria point system​​ of the Admissions criteria​. The number of students accepted into the DMS program is based on availability of approved clinical education centers, but varies each year from 8 to 10 students.
Acceptance Information

Each student will be notified of their initial acceptance into the program by receiving an electronic letter sent to your MSJC student email within 2 to 4 weeks after the filing deadline. Final admission is conditional on the student submitting an acknowledgement form, a clear background check, a satisfactory physical exam, and an American Heart Association Healthcare Provider CPR certification. Detailed instructions for this process will accompany the letter of initial acceptance.
