Preference Factors

Clinical Perfusion Program Preference Factors

The requirements for admission described in Admission Requirements are minimum requirements for admission. Because admission to the Program is highly competitive, the Program has designated a number of "Preference Factors" for applicants. In considering applicants for admission to the Program, the Admissions Committee will give preference for admission to applicants possessing the following:

Selection of Students

Upon review of the applications, those applicants considered most competitive will be invited for a personal interview. An applicant is considered without regard to age, sex, race, color, national origin, religion, political beliefs, or disability. Motivational factors, life experience, patient care experience, maturity, personality as assessed in personal interviews, and references are all important factors in the selection process. An applicant's academic record is important and serves as an indicator of ability to succeed in an intensive and rigorous program.

Applicants who have not been accepted for admission may be placed on an alternate list. In the event a seat in the educational program becomes available, alternates will be contacted and offered admission. However, being placed on an alternate list does not guarantee that the individual will be accepted in the future class. Alternate candidates must reapply if they wish to be considered in future years.
