Step 1 - SlideRoom Account & The Application

To access the online application, please create a free online SlideRoom account and select the COMET program to get started.

The application fee for the 2019-20 program year will be $95 (Non-refundable). Online payment can be made once a student submits his/her completed application.

A completed application consists of:

  • The contact information of two professional references
  • Curriculum vitae (CV)
  • Unofficial transcripts from all undergraduate colleges and universities attended


Step 2 - The Interview

Interviews are by invitation only. Applicants will be informed if they are invited for an interview or not in February. Interviews will occur through March. For applicants residing outside the Bay Area, this interview may be arranged via video conference. Those not invited to interview should understand that the application process is exceptionally competitive, and students are encouraged to reapply for the program next year.


Step 3 - Admission

Applicants will be notified if they are accepted to the program or not by late March. Onboarding procedures and online scribe training classes will begin in April and May. Fellows will need to be on-site for in-clinic training in June.
