Accepted students who match at the Seattle Foundations Site may apply to CUSP beginning the summer before matriculation. The application will open in June and remain open through Immersion (the first two weeks of medical school). All Seattle students will receive an email with an invitation to apply. The CUSP Team will review applications and select a group of students for a first-round phone interview. Second-round interviews take place in-person in September.
The brief online application asks about your background, service experience, and professional goals. We are looking for students with a strong commitment to health equity, and experience living and/or working in urban underserved communities.
During the 2018 admissions process, the CUSP Application can be found here:
The 2018 application will close at 11:59pm on Friday August 31, 2018.
We encourage students who identify as underrepresented in medicine (including LGBTQ students and students with disabilities) to apply for CUSP, though this is not a requirement for admission.
