Delaware Institute of Medical Education and Research (DIMER)

Providing opportunities for Delaware residents to receive a medical education.

Created in 1969 as an alternative to a state-supported medical school, DIMER provides an opportunity for Delaware residents to obtain a high-quality medical education.

Through DIMER , Delaware has a relationship with Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University of Philadelphia, PA, and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) resulting in Sidney Kimmel Medical College and PCOM functioning as Delaware's medical schools. Each year twenty (20) admission slots at Sidney Kimmel Medical College and ten (10) admission slots at PCOM are reserved for first year applicants from Delaware, which has increased the odds of acceptance for students from the First State.

Eligible applicants must be legal residents of the State of Delaware and meet the premedical academic requirements of the preferred medical college; Sidney Kimmel Medical College or PCOM. Bachelor's degrees from any accredited college or university in the United States are accepted.
