  • History

    The Texas Medical and Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS) began operating as the UT System Medical and Dental Application Center in 1968. It was created by the UT System Board of Regents to serve as a central application center for all UT System medical and dental schools.

    In 1999, the name changed to reflect the addition of medical and dental schools outside of the UT System with the inclusion of the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine and the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Medicine. TMDSAS expanded further when the University of North Texas - Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine joined in 2000 and 2001, respectively.

    Since its establishment, the Texas Medical and Dental Schools Application Service strives to benefit both the applicant and its participating institutions. Applicants have the benefit of applying to multiple schools with just one application and for a flat fee. The participating institutions receive applications from TMDSAS that have been reviewed for accuracy and uniformly interpreted in accordance to state laws relating to admissions.
