A Personalized Application Experience

Saba operates on a year-round schedule, with incoming classes starting in January, May and September.

We accept applications at any time throughout the year. Approximately 90 students are admitted to each class. The three-term schedule not only makes it more convenient to get started, it also allows you to complete your studies more quickly. Instead of a single summer break, you'll have shorter breaks of two to three weeks between each semester.

That means you will complete your five semesters of Basic Sciences in just 20 months, and then return home to do your clinical rotations at ACGME-approved teaching hospitals in the U.S. and Canada that are affiliated with Saba.

We encourage you to submit your application and all required documents six to eight months prior to your desired start date, and certainly no later than three months prior. Since the number of students in each class is limited and the application pool is competitive, early applicants will have a better chance of securing a place in the semester of their choice.
