Update on the waitlist, and change in leadership

June 5th, 2019 by Dr Ian Walker

First, I can confirm that the waitlist has moved much less than in previous years.  Currently, all but 4 positions in the incoming medical school class have been spoken for.  We have 4 offers outstanding, which I believe expire at the end fo the week.  I would expect a handful of more offers next week, and then a trickle as the odd person inevitably choses to attend somewhere else after accepting here initially.  I expect a note will go out from the office staff soon regarding that.

Second, I should let you all know that as of June 1st, I am no longer Director of Admissions.  While it has been a great experience, and I think we have accomplished much over the past decade, it is time for new energy and focus.  My replacement is a fantastic physician colleague who shares our collective vision for MD admissions. His name is Dr. Panaccione, and I expect you will be hearing from him soon on this platform.

Best of luck to one and all.
