Our Doctor of Medicine (MD) program is one of the most coveted and in-demand programs for students aspiring to make a career as a doctor.

Program Details

Doctor of Medicine (MD) program at Texila American University – College of Medicine (TAU-COM) is an undergraduate medical program.

The Doctor of Medicine program has the following:

  • Basic Sciences – 2 Years
  • Clinical Sciences – 2 Years

In the first two years, the basic medical sciences are taught in the context of their relevance to patient care. Later in the last two years of the program, clinical teaching builds upon and reinforces this strong scientific foundation.

*Students who have successfully completed advanced science courses such as Anatomy & Physiology, Biochemistry, and Genetics will be given preference.

TMAT

Texila Medical Admission Test (TMAT): TMAT is an MCQ based examination consisting of 200 basic science questions such as Basic concepts of Human Anatomy 25%, Basic Concepts of Physiology 25%, Basic Concepts of Biochemistry 25%, Medical Terminology 10%, Psychology 5%, Fundamental Organic Chemistry 5% and Basic Biology 5%. The required pass percentage for acceptance of the applicant is a 60% score in TMAT. The time duration for TMAT is four hours.

Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI)

MMI interviews consist of five short practical assessments, usually 10 minutes each, which is conducted by the faculty members known as ‘Admission Interviewers’, who are appointed by the Admissions Committee. Applicants will be presented with a scenario before each mini-interview, so the applicant will have sufficient time to prepare an answer. MMI is conducted to assess the applicants based on the following parameters:

  1. Ethical Decision Making
  2. Critical Thinking
  3. Reasoning
  4. Psychological
  5. Communication Skills

Transfer Applicants

TAU welcomes students from WHO/WDMS recognized institutions as transfer applicants to the MD program. TAU currently does not accept students to the clinical science and transfer applications are ONLY considered to the Basic Science Program.

Transfer credit is not automatic, and applicants must not assume that courses taken at other institutions will meet TAU requirements. Acceptance of transfer credit is subject to verification and approval by the Student Promotions & Graduation Committee and subject to the availability of classes. Each transfer student application is carefully reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Due to great variability in the academic backgrounds of transfer students, the requirements and deadlines set forth by the Committee may differ from student to student.

Admission Documents

  • Completed Online Application
  • Color Copy of Passport + 2 copies of Color Passport Photos
  • Official Transcripts from all institutions attended
  • Personal Statement (One page or 1500 words explaining why you want to become a Physician)
  • Resume or CV
  • 2 Letters of Recommendation (At least one must come from an Academic source)

Technical Standards

The Liaison Committee on Medical Education, an accrediting body for medical education in the US, has defined and described the technical standards which are the necessary physical and mental abilities of all candidates and graduates. The following abilities and characteristics, in addition to academic standards, are requirements for admission, promotion, and graduation for all medicine students.

Students should observe materials presented in the learning environment including audiovisual presentations, written documents, microbiology cultures, microscopic examination of microorganisms, tissues and gross organs in the normal and pathologic state, and diagnostic images. They should also observe patients accurately and completely, both at a distance and directly. This requires functional vision, hearing, and sensation.

Technical requirements

  • Students should be able to observe, demonstrations and participate in experiments in the basic sciences
  • For our Doctor of Medicine program students must be able to analyze, synthesize, extrapolate, solve problems, and reach diagnostic and therapeutic judgments
  • Students should have sufficient use of the senses of vision and hearing and the somatic sensation necessary to perform a physical examination. Students should be able to perform palpation, auscultation, and percussion
  • Students should reasonably be expected to relate to patients and establish sensitive, professional relationships with patients
  • Students should reasonably be expected to learn and perform routine laboratory tests and diagnostic procedures
  • Students should reasonably be expected to communicate the results of the examination to the patient and to his colleagues with accuracy, clarity and efficiency
  • Students should be expected to perform routine invasive procedure as part of training using universal procedures without substantial risk of infection to patients
  • Students must be able to perform with precise, quick and appropriate actions in emergency situations
  • For our Doctor of Medicine program the students must be able to display good judgment in the assessment and treatment of patients
  • Students must possess the perseverance, diligence and consistency to complete the medical school curriculum and enter the independent practice of medicine
  • Students should be able to accept criticism and respond by appropriate modification of behavior
