Yale Secondary Application

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.
