Yale Secondary Application

Yale Secondary Application Deadlines

  • Early Decision Program (EDP) applicants: August 1
  • All other MD and MD/PhD applicants: November 15

To complete the application process, applicants to the MD and MD/PhD programs must submit an online Yale Secondary Application, in addition to their AMCAS application.

All applicants will be invited by email to submit a Yale Secondary Application after submitting the AMCAS application.   This email invitation should arrive within one week of submitting the AMCAS application to Yale (beginning in late July when the Yale Secondary Application goes live).   If you do not receive this email (in your inbox) within this time frame, see the box on the left for troubleshooting tips.

Application Revisions

You may not make any online changes to your Yale Secondary Application after it has been submitted. You must submit your changes in writing to the Office of Admissions by logging in to your application and clicking on the "Status" tab, then clicking on the "Communication" menu, then clicking on the button to send an email to the Admissions Office.

If you wish to submit an update to your application at any time throughout the application season (before or after an interview), you may upload a .pdf document using the Document Upload tab in the Secondary Application.

Contact Information Updates

If an important change in your contact information occurs after submitting your application, this information should be submitted to AMCAS.

Hotmail Email Delivery Problem

It has come to our attention that emails sent from our admissions system to some applicants are being filtered into the recipient's spam folder (usually if you are using Hotmail). Until this problem has been resolved, we are asking applicants to do three things:

  1. Check your spam folder for emails from ampsystem@yale.edu.
  2. If you see any of these emails in your spam folder, designate them as "not spam," which will redirect the email from your spam folder to your inbox.
  3. Add the yale.edu domain to your "safe sender" list in Hotmail to assure that all future emails from the admissions system will arrive in your inbox.
