Students can apply to BS/MD programs during their high school years. Upon acceptance, students will enter a program that allows them to go straight to medical school after completing a Bachelor’s degree. Program lengths vary between six, seven, and eight years.
Those who intend to pursue medicine after high school can take advantage of this program. There is no concern about whether students will be accepted to medical school, and in some cases, MCAT exams may not be required.
It is critical to note, however, that most MD transitions are provisional. In order to earn a bachelor’s degree, students must maintain a certain GPA, stay out of trouble, etc.
