Combined BA/BS/MD Programs

Direct medical programs (also known as combined BA/MD or BS/MD programs) allow students to be accepted into an allopathic medical school from high school. In other words, program students are accepted into both an undergraduate university as well as an allopathic medical school out of high school. There are a variety of programs around the country, each with its own unique requirements, expectations, and benefits.

Even for a student with the best academic and extracurricular attributes, the medical school admissions process is often very stressful and expensive. Having early admission to a medical school relieves much of this stress, while allowing you to focus your energies on your own interests in college rather than on playing the medical school admissions game. If you are already 100% sure you want to be a doctor, accelerated programs are a much easier path.

Do I still have to take the MCAT? Will there be a minimum GPA in college? »

Click above to reveal answers

This varies by school, but many will require a minimum score on the MCAT. For the most part, this score will be lower than what most students would need to be extremely competitive in regular medical school admissions. Similarly, many schools do require a minimum GPA, which varies by program.
