Deferring enrollment for one year is possible. Requests for deferment are considered on a case-by-case basis. If you wish to be considered for deferment, please write us explaining why you would like to be so considered, and what your plans are for the interval year. The Committee accepts proposals for deferment only when the planned activity will contribute importantly to the applicant's career in medicine. The deadline for requesting deferment is June 1.
