Students are asked for their specialty track (General or Cardiovascular) and campus location preference during the application process. Enrollment in each specialty track and at each campus is limited. The admissions committee, composed of program faculty and administration, evaluates the qualifications of each applicant and makes the final selections for admission, specialty track and campus location. Accepted students will be required to complete a background check and substance abuse testing prior to program matriculation. Additional requirements may vary by clinical site. DMS Admissions Policies are in the CAHP Handbook.
