UMPT COVID-19 Update

In light of the broad scale impact of COVID-19, the UMPT program has modified the application requirements for the 2020-2021 cycle. We hope that these adaptations are helpful to our applicants during these difficult times:

  •  All CR/NCR grading will be accepted for courses taken during the Spring 2020 semester.

  • Accepted GRE scores will include exams taken as late at November 30, 2020.

  • Our inpatient observation hour requirement will be waived for the 2020-2021 application cycle.

    • Applicants who do have any opportunity to complete their 16 hours of inpatient observation should submit their verifications on PTCAS, as directed in the application. However, these hours are not required.

  • Despite waiving the inpatient observation requirement, applicants need a total of 80 observation hours within at least 2 different settings, with a minimum of 16 hours in each.
