TMDSAS logoThe Texas Medical & Dental Schools Application Service simplifies the application process for both the applicants and the participating schools. Learn about the history of TMDSAS.


TMDSAS provides one standardized application, relieving students of the need to complete a separate application for each of the participating schools.

The TMDSAS participating schools benefit by receiving uniform information on all applicants and by designing the questions on the application. TMDSAS is housed within the Texas Health Education Service in Austin, Texas.
