BA/MD or BS/MD Programs

Combined bachelor’s and medical degree programs cannot be found at just any university and, where available, admissions standards are extremely high, with the medical school acceptance contingent on undergraduate performance. Combined degree programs at these colleges are ultra-competitive and require years of intense work, but they can save participants time, money and the stress of formally applying to medical school. The following table reveals colleges offering combined medical (BA/MD or BS/MD) programs and the medical school with whom each partners. Click the links below for more information about each program.
