Committee Charge:

The Committee on Medical Student Selection shall review all applications for admission to the College and shall determine a list of candidates and alternate candidates for admission.  The Committee shall also review and make recommendations to the Dean concerning procedures by which applicants are screened, interviewed and selected. 

 

The Committee shall be composed of nine core clinical faculty, seven core basic science faculty, and four faculty from the USF-Lehigh Valley campus to be nominated by the Faculty Council.  The Committee will also include a faculty member involved with diversity and minority affairs and up to three additional faculty members-at-large to be appointed by the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs.  The Medical Student Council, in cooperation with the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, selects six senior medical student members:  four from the Core program and two from the SELECT program.  Of these students, three (two from Core and one from SELECT) are designated as voting members of the Committee and three are designated as alternates.  The alternate representative members will be ex-officio, non-voting members of the Committee unless the active member(s) is (are) not in attendance.  The Committee will be supported by faculty interviewers designated annually by the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs.  The Dean appoints the Committee Chairperson, who shall be a core faculty member.  Committee members (with the exception of medical students) are appointed for three-year overlapping terms.  The Associate Dean for Student Affairs shall be a non-voting, ex-officio member.
